, Liverpool step up interest in Werner transfer ahead of Sancho move due to clause in RB Leipzig strikers contract

LIVERPOOL are reportedly ready to go all out for RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner this summer as they look to bring him to Anfield.

The 23-year-old has no shortage of admirers having chipped in with 25 goals and ten assists in 29 games in all competitions this season.

RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner seems destined to leave the club in the summer

He seems destined to leave the Bundesliga at the end of the campaign, with the Reds understood to be battling the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea for his signature.

According to the Athletic’s James Pearce, Jurgen Klopp’s side have identified Werner as a target, though it has been claimed that there is no agreement in place.

It has been suggested that he is seen as a more attractive option as he would be considerably cheaper than Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho.

Werner allegedly has a release clause of 51million in his current contract, while England international Sancho would cost up to 127m.

German news outlet Bild reported last month that the player’s preferred destination is Liverpool.

And Werner himself recently stated that he is open to playing in the Premier League as he gushed about the quality of the English top-flight.

Speaking to Kicker, he said: “What do you say if a club comes knocking in the next two weeks, a club which is one of the favourites to win the Champions League and makes an incredible offer?

“Most likely every player would think about it. I can generally imagine playing abroad one day, although I don’t have any specific club where I want to be.

“I am open for everything. I was over in America for a holiday recently and English football was on all of the time. That’s an exclamation mark for the Premier League.

“But there are also big, famous clubs and it would certainly be fun playing there.
