Timo Werner to Bayern Munich is by no means a done deal…
Reports emanated in SportBild earlier in the week that Bayern Munich have agreed personal terms with the striker, although as of yet, the Bundesliga champions haven’t spoken to Rb Leipzig.
Red Bull CEO Dietrich Mateschitz told German publication Blick [translated by Goal] that Bayern will have to pay huge money to secure the forward: “For sure that player [Werner] will not be cheap!”
Right now, Liverpool’s focus is solely on our end to the season and our ambitions of Premier League and Champions League glory – so we’re not too fussed about the transfer market.
However, come the summer, Michael Edwards will be trying to secure the deals for the players already analysed by our extensive team of scouts and analysts as appropriate.
We’re going to need a forward, with Daniel Sturridge departing on a free transfer and the future of Divock Origi uncertain…
Werner seemingly fits the bill, but we can’t see Liverpool spending a ridiculous amount of money on someone who wouldn’t necessarily even be a starter, considering our current front-three!
Another wing-forward, who can rotate and support Sadio Mane and Mo Salah on the flanks, is a priority, though. Our choice is Nicholas Pepe!
