Plenty of Liverpool fans are begging the club to sign transfer target Timo Werner following a recent admission from the RB Leipzig striker.
The 24-year-old, who has also been linked with Bayern Munich, told German media outlet Sport Bild that he would like his next career move to take him outside his native country, saying: “It’s just that the challenge in another league would appeal to me a little more than a change within the Bundesliga.”
The latest report on Werner comes a couple of days after Sport Bild journalist Christian Falk tweeted (via @cfbayern) that the Germany striker ruled out the chances of moving to Bayern Munich and hinted at a preference to team up with compatriot Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool.
Recently, both Sky Sports and the Evening Standard reported that the RB Leipzig striker has a desire to play for the Reds. Sky Sports added that Werner could make the move to Anfield if the Premier League club were to meet his £52m expiry clause before it expires on 15 June. The 24-year-old has struck 27 goals in 36 games for RB Leipzig this season, helping them to reach the Champions League quarter-finals and challenge for the Bundesliga title.
Following his admission to Sport Bild, these Liverpool fans on Twitter have been pleading for the Anfield club to strike a deal for him in the coming weeks:
Exactly the type of player we need

I honestly can’t remember wanting a player so badly in a long, long time.
He wants it and we we want it.

I think he’d be a great addition. We don’t have a ruthless goalscorer through the middle. With the chances we create he would be awesome. I don’t think he’ll be bought to replace but to add to. To dominate we need a bigger squad.

We should pay whatever they want for Werner he’s a quality player , and maybe offload a bit of the dead wood in the deal
