According to a recent report by El Desmarque (translated by The Daily Star), Red Bull Leipzig centre-forward Timo Werner has a ‘pre-agreement’ with Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp. He is set to make a move to Anfield next summer before UEFA Euro 2020 so that his price doesn’t skyrocket based on his performances during the tournament.
The same source has also revealed that the Reds will have a €200m (£170m) war chest for the summer window, so they won’t have a problem to fund a move for the German striker, who has a €60m (£51m) release clause in his contract at the Red Bull Arena.
Werner’s Remarkable Goal-Scoring Record At Leipzig
If accurate, this latest development will be an exciting bit of news for anyone associated with the Merseyside club. Werner has enjoyed another fruitful campaign so far after he put in a plethora of goal-scoring displays in the Bundesliga. He has registered 25 goals and ten assists in 26 appearances for Julian Nagelsmann’s team this term in all competitions.
The German international has averaged 3.9 shots, 1.4 key passes and 1.5 dribbles per game for both club and country this season (stats via whoscored). Werner’s exceptional record in German football has raised his stock even further in the European market so it will be a massive coup for the European champions if they can manage to get a deal done for him at the end of this campaign.
The Stuttgart-born frontman has also earned 29 senior caps for the German national side and has scored 11 international goals in the process.
What Will The European Sensation Bring To Merseyside?
Werner is one of the fastest runners in German football and has the pace to lose his marker in the final third. He excels at finding the back of the net and always seems to be in the right place at the right time. The Bundesliga star is also not shy of setting up a chance for his teammates if they are in a better position to score.
The 23-year-old is a complete forward who has no significant weaknesses in his game as such. He has the ceiling to become one of the best players of his generation if he takes the leap to join Premier League leaders and play football at the highest level week in week out.
The fact that Klopp is also German will help the Leipzig goal-getter settle into English football quickly. Hence, Werner joining Liverpool could be a match made in heaven as both the player and the Merseyside club will benefit enormously from such a coalition next summer. There is no doubt that the German prospect can achieve more success in the coming years if he decides to join Klopp’s revolution at Anfield.
