Liverpool have been linked with a move for rising German football star Timo Werner by countless sources, and now two respected Italian journalists have added more fuel to the fire.
Fabrizio Romano and Nicolo Schira have both Tweeted about the Leipzig forward this weekend, with the latter making the biggest revelation.
Schira, who primarily works for La Gazzetta dello Sport, claims that Liverpool are “ready” to pay Werner’s release clause, but Romano (Sky) says we have to wait for more info.

Liverpool are in contact with Werner agent by months… this is not new 🙂 they’re in the race – but nothing is done or decided yet. Just have to wait some days/weeks and Liverpool will decide they strategy about strikers, Werner, release clause and more.

Werner would obviously arrive at Liverpool and be very well aware that he’ll be competing with Salah, Mane and Bobby Firmino – the best attacking trio in the world – for a place.
It won’t be easy, but we can almost guarantee that he, Bobby and Takumi Minamino will be a more than acceptable auxiliary front line during AFCON.
It’s really up to the German if he fancies the challenge – he could go elsewhere, Chelsea for example, and get more game time, but he wouldn’t be working under Jurgen Klopp.
The pulling power of our boss often goes under the radar, but he is the best manager in the world, and players are going to want to work with him.
