Though it by no means represents a ‘come and buy me’ request from Timo Werner, his appreciation for this club’s famous anthem is a healthy sign in Liverpool’s supposed pursuit of the striker.
The RB Leipzig forward has emerged as a reported summer transfer target for Jurgen Klopp having impressed in the Bundesliga this season, scoring 14 goals.
He is also expected to make his full debut for Germany on Wednesday night having earned a call up after playing an influential role in helping his side to second place.
“If you were to play at Anfield and hear the fans sing ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone,’ it would certainly be something special,” he told Sport Bild via the Liverpool Echo.
“England has a different feel, but I am also still young player.”
“I feel at home here at RB right now. Leipzig can continue to grow, and if I could be part it I’d be delighted.”
Signing him this summer now seems unlikely given how he is practically guaranteed Champions League football with Leipzig next season.
He is also only 21-years-old and given the stage Klopp finds himself at in his long-term project with Liverpool, it seems unlikely he would take too many risks on a fairly unproven centre-forward.
We suspect a man with some added experience will be the kind of recruit Klopp looks to, yet we are certain the rumours linking us to Werner will continue.
