There has been strong interest from Bayern Munich as well. But the German is insisting on a shift away from the Bundesliga. Liverpool are the most likely destination for the forward. Timo has shown interest in working under Jurgen Klopp in the past.
But Chelsea and United are also keen admirers. Both PL clubs will be sure to give the Reds a tight competition. Moreover, the trio will need to act fast if they need to secure him.
Timo may not suit Liverpool’s frontline.
Werner has been an explosive striker for RB Leipzig. The German has 32 goals in all competitions. Which has found the interest of many clubs? Liverpool has also been admirers of the youngster. Timo is also keen to work with Klopp, who he considers the best in the world.
Despite rumors from SB Nation about a deal between Liverpool and Werner. The certainty of the news is still unknown. But the addition of Werner to Anfield could have both good and bad effects. The German is an excellent forward but he may not be able to adjust to Liv’s frontline. Mane and Salah are tricky players and Timo is a player with a different style. Hence, it may cause problems for the striker to cope with them.
But if Werner does find it adaptable then he can bring in friendly competition. The Reds have a solid frontline but it’s always good to have a cover. Werner and his talents can be a great addition to Klopp’s plans. But there is strong interest from Chelsea and United too.
Werner wants Champions League
It’s pretty clear by now that RB Leipzig cannot hold onto Werner any longer. A move away from the club is right around the corner. Also, there are a lot of parties showing interest as well. The £49m release clause is something the clubs can utilize to secure him.
But the one thing the German is demanding for is regular Champions League assurance. His favorite destination can assure him that. Liverpool stands 1st and will undoubtedly be the PL champions. This will be an attractive factor for Werner. But there is still strong competition between Chelsea and United.
Chelsea stands 4th and United 5th in the PL table. The clubs may swap positions once the league resumes. But they can still try to put in negotiations for the German forward. As per new reports, the Blues are trying to lure him in with a 10m per year earnings. This is a very attractive deal for the Leipzig star.
Meanwhile, Liverpool and United are still assessing their finances. Chelsea has lashed out such an attractive deal. Even though the future of the star is still unknown. But the shift from Leipzig is pretty obvious in the near future.
