Liverpool officially told £30m bargain goal-machine Werner will leave this summer when offer arrives
Liverpool target Timo Werner could leave RB Leipzig this summer, according to the club’s chief Ralf Rangnick.
Werner, 23, has one year remaining on his contract and has been linked with a move to Liverpool, PSG and Borussia Dortmund.
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp may have one of the best attacks in world football, but the German is keen to add some much needed back-up to his attack over the next few months and has been keeping an eye on the impressive Werner over the past few months.
The Germany international hasn’t agreed a new deal and there is a lot of talk in the media that Liverpool and Bayern Munich are leading the chase to nail down a £30 million transfer deal.
And Rangnick thinks he should be sold this transfer window, instead of losing him for free next year.
“Our position is that if he does not renew the contract, he should change clubs,” he told German television station Sport1.
“He would first have to agree with a club and this club would have to contact RB, which has not happened to my knowledge.”
Liverpool do need to add some much needed depth to the side over the next few months if they are to keep this high level of football they like to play, and signing Werner would be a good bit of business.
The young man is scoring goals for fun over in the Bundesliga and he is still young enough to keep developing into one of the best strikers in the game.
And for the £30 million he would be a snip, especially as forwards in world football are going for more than double that.
If Liverpool have a chance to sign Werner, they should take it as he Werner could be the idea man to come in and add more goals to the Liverpool attack, especially as he could also play in a number of the front three’s roles.
