Bundesliga Forward Welcomes Premier League Move Amid Liverpool Interest: Should Klopp Make A Move?

Must Read

A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent interview with Kicker (via The Metro), Red Bull Leipzig striker Timo Werner addressed the possibility of him making a future move to the Premier League when he said, ‘When you score 20 goals as a 23-year-old in a season then, of course, there is interest. That’s clear.

‘We are going into many important games. That’s what I want to focus on now. I can still contemplate my future later.’

‘What do you say if a club comes knocking, a club which is one of the favourites to win the Champions League and makes an incredible offer? Most likely every player would think about it.

‘I can generally imagine playing abroad one day, although I don’t have any specific club where I want to be. I am open for everything.

‘I was in America for a holiday recently and English football was on all the time. That’s an exclamation mark for the Premier League.

‘But there are also big, famous clubs and it would certainly be fun playing there.’

Werner’s Incredible Form In The Bundesliga

Liverpool have been credited with an interest in recruiting the German striker for a long time, so his latest comments will undoubtedly be an invitation for the Reds to orchestrate a potential move for him next summer (via The Metro). The 23-year-old has enjoyed another brilliant season at Leipzig after putting in numerous goal-scoring displays for them so far in this campaign. He has registered 25 goals and ten assists in 28 appearances for the Bundesliga outfit this term across all competitions.

Werner has averaged 0.7 tackles, 4.2 shots, 1.5 key passes and 1.7 dribbles per game in the German first division (stats via whoscored). He is currently one of the most prolific young forward in European football who has also earned 29 senior caps for the German national side while scoring 11 goals for his country in the process.

What Will The German Striker Bring To Anfield?

Werner boasts excellent pace and can make some lung-bursting runs behind the opposition defence. He is a fox inside the opposition box as he is an unforgiving finisher in front of the opposing goal. Furthermore, the German international has a knack for finding space in the final third and is often the first to react when a chance falls in his path inside the opposition penalty box.

Should Liverpool Make A Move For Werner Next Summer?

Liverpool can benefit a lot from acquiring the services of a striker of Werner’s skillset. He will be an ideal back-up for Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah at Anfield due to his blistering pace and track record for scoring goals consistently at the highest level.

What makes him such an excellent fit for the Merseyside club is the fact that he will serve as a dream substitute off the bench if Klopp chooses to ease him into this first-team plans next season. Hence, the Reds should consider splashing the cash on the young Leipzig forward before another top club snaps him up at the end of this campaign.
