Reported Liverpool target Timo Werner is being transformed into the new Roberto Firmino

Posted by

Timo Werner says he is becoming a more rounded player under new coach Julian Nagelsmann at RB Leipzig, calling himself more of a ‘false nine’ in recent comments on his playing position.

The Germany international has been linked with the Reds a number of times over the last couple of seasons and has a release clause of just €30 million, says Bundesliga journalist Manuel Veth.

As his comments in the tweet below show, cited originally in One Football, Werner says he has become more like Roberto Firmino since Nagelsmann moved from Hoffenheim, which could make him an even more interesting proposition for the Reds.

Werner could become a long-term replacement for Firmino and if Leipzig are moulding him into a player of that similar kind, Jurgen Klopp is only going to become even more intrigued by the forward.

At that price, and with an increasingly appropriate skillset for playing at Anfield, we can’t see any reason why the Germany international won’t be considered a genuine target come next summer.
