According to the famous German newspaper ‘Bild’, Timo Werner has ruled out playing for Bayern Munich and has a greater interest in reinforcing Liverpool’s attack. This season, so far, the striker is in second place as the top scorer of Bundesliga, only behind Robert Lewandowski.
It is already known Werner’s interest in leaving RB Leipzig at the end of this season. However, several European teams have shown up as potential clubs who want to count on the striker’s services.
However, the athlete would have already made it clear that his desire is to go to Anfield. According to Sky Sports, this is the player’s wish and he expects the club to activate his purchase clause before its expiration, which should happen in less than two months.
In a conversation with the Bild newspaper, striker Sadio Mane says he talked to the German player about a possible transfer to the current Champions League champions. The Senegalese said that he liked Werner’s style and that would be very good if he joined the team.
In February, in an interview with the Norwegian TV channel ‘Viasport Football’, Timo Werner stated that his style matches Liverpool. In addition, the striker praised coach Jurgen Klopp. With that, a lot of speculations about him going to England were made.
During this interview, the player seemed only happy with the fact he was being linked to a great team with a great manager. Now, however, it seems he really wants to play for the Reds.
His market value, according to Transfermarkt, is 64 million euros. This wouldn’t be a bad deal to Liverpool, once they could improve their game with another good striker on the team.
It would be a win-win situation. The Reds would have another good striker, perhaps better than Bobby Firmino in terms of scoring goals, and Werner would play for one of the biggest clubs in Europe.
