Plenty of Liverpool fans have urged the club to sign transfer target Timo Werner as the Bundesliga returned to action this afternoon and gamblers flocked to online-betting.org for the latest odds.

The 24-year-old, who has been heavily linked with a summer move to Anfield and hinted at a desire to move to the Reds (as per The Athletic), was in action for current club RB Leipzig as they took on Freiburg behind closed doors in their first fixture in just over two months.

Werner had scored 27 goals already this season but was unable to add to his tally today, with Julian Nagelsmann’s side needing to come from behind to draw 1-1 in a result that harms their title aspirations.

Nonetheless, the Germany striker was one of his team’s standout performers at a deserted Red Bull Arena. He managed to get both of his shots on target and executed five key passes, the most of anyone on the pitch and as many as Freiburg had in total. He also completed two successful dribbles on the day.
