Liverpool still keen on €55m Werner

The German striker could be Premier-League bound

After RB Leipzig star Timo Werner admitted he was proud to be linked with a possible move to Anfield, Liverpool themselves seemingly remain intent on bringing him to England.

“Bayern Munich turned him down because they’ve got [Robert] Lewandowski. But I feel that Klopp and him could be a good combination. We know he’s got a clause of €55 million ($59m), and in this market that is quite cheap," he said.

“So no Liverpool haven’t pulled out.”
