The Athletic released an article today confirming that while United are keen on the 23-year-old striker, Werner’s first-choice is Liverpool – and that he’ll be Anfield bound if Jurgen Klopp wants him.
The club has until a point in April to trigger his €51m release-clause, writes Simon Hughes – with Italian journalist Nico Schira suggesting we’ve already discussed personal terms with the player.
It’s great that Werner is willing to sign for Liverpool and compete with the world’s best attackers for minutes, rather than take the easy option of a guaranteed spot and more money at Old Trafford.
The lure of Klopp is very much real!
