The Reds follow ‘very closely’ to the German International and RB Leipzig forward.
The 22-year old RB Leipzig’s Timo Werner was identified as one of the targets by Barcelona to strengthen their attack.
He is known as the youngest player to score two goals in a top-flight match in Germany.
The Thursday’s edition of Catalan newspaper Sports claims, the German international has moved away from the orbit of the La Liga winners.
As Bayern Munich and Liverpool have taken the lead over Ernesto Valverde’s side in the race for the 22-year-old.
It is claimed the Bavarian club controls the transfer market in their own country when it comes to the signing of young talent in Germany, which is why they have identified the attacker as a target to strengthen their strike force for the next season.
However, they will face competition from the Merseyside club, who have joined the race at the last minute for the Bundesliga star.
It is further suggested, the Reds manager Jurgen Klopp, who knows the German league very well likes his compatriot and also follows him ‘very closely’. He is known to be the big fan of this young Bundesliga star.
This feels very much like Liverpool being linked simply because their manager is German.
Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool do not want to miss the opportunity to sign Timo Werner. Werner is a great deal to bring to Anfield. Liverpool already has a bunch of talented players. Addition of one more striker would raise the striking strength of the club.
