Naby Keita & Sadio Mane confirm plans to help Liverpool sign Timo Werner

Liverpool & Timo Werner

Rumours have been flying about for a while that Liverpool are interested in German international striker Timo Werner.

Werner looks set to be a prized asset this summer as his future at RB Leipzig is up in the air.

Werner is out of contract at Leipzig in 2020, and there’s been little to suggest that the forward will agree a contract extension.

That could mean Leipzig are forced into selling Werner this summer in order to recoup a significant transfer fee.

Naby Keita & Sadio Mane

Liverpool have previously done business with RB Leipzig over the signing of Naby Keita.

Keita, along with Sadio Mane, have been interviewed by German magazine Sport Bild.

During the conversation, Keita and Mane confirmed plans to speak directly to Werner about joining the Reds. Keita said:

We played really well together at Leipzig, and he was one of my best mates.

It’s clear: Should he move, then I ask Timo to join us here at Liverpool.

Mane then chimed in too:

I’d advise him to join Liverpool. I like his style of play. Very forceful, good finish, always giving it 100 percent.

If he wants to join us, we’d welcome him to our team.

22-year-old Werner has scored 11 goals in 20 matches for Leipzig in the Bundesliga.

He’s also scored twice in the German Cup, three times in the Champions League and once in the Europa League.

Why Liverpool may want Werner

Liverpool seem set to freshen up their attacking options this summer.

Mo Salah has often been deployed as Liverpool’s main attacker this season, while Roberto Firmino has been positioned in a more withdrawn role.

Liverpool’s back-up options are limited.

Dom Solanke left Anfield in January to join Bournemouth, while Daniel Sturridge and Divock Origi remain fringe players at Anfield.

Liverpool may have to battle Bayern Munich for Werner’s signature.
