Liverpool already have plenty of attacking talent, but one centre-forward may just tempt coach Jurgen Klopp into the transfer window this summer.
The club have seen Brazilian star Roberto Firmino go through ups and downs this campaign, so bringing in another forward is not beyond all realms of possibility, and RB Leipzig star Timo Werner has been strongly linked.
The Liverpool Echo report that the Reds are keeping a close eye on key RB Leipzig man, with Jurgen understood to be a fan of his fellow countryman.
The Reds may now be on red alert, as Timo has rejected a new contract with the Bundesliga club and has just 12 months left on his current deal, meaning a summer departure may be on the cards.
This is surely the time for Anfield outfit to make the concrete move. England international star Daniel Sturridge is departing and Belgian star Divock Origi’s long-term future is unclear, so adding one high-quality striker to compete with Roberto would give Klopp’s men another dimension going forward.
Whilst SoAmericancian brings great technique and work rate, Timo has bags of pace and likes to run off the shoulder of the last player, giving Jurgen another devastating option in the attack, whilst he might be purchased for great value considering his contract situation.
The timing is ideal for Liverpool, and it might have a major impact on city rivals Everton, given that football news website Calciomercato.com state that RB Leipzig star Jean-Kevin Augustin is their main attacking target in summer.
