Liverpool fans have been left in a frenzy after fresh reports emerged surrounding long-term target, Timo Werner, this week.
While this hugely remains to be seen, the current financial climate and situation facing football clubs post-pandemic raises plenty of question marks, but that hasn’t stopped the Anfield faithful from going nuts on Twitter.
It’s believed that Werner and Liverpool are destined to meet at some stage given the substantial amount of reports circulating over the past year or so and for the time being, it is hard to envisage him getting a place in Jurgen Klopp’s starting XI as Mo Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane still the main trio.
The 24-year-old has been in impressive form this campaign, providing 27 goals and 12 assists in 37 appearances in all competitions, via Transfermarkt.
Sky Sports claim that the Leipzig talisman has a £52m release clause which is set to expire on June 15th, so a decision would have to be made very soon – and clearly plenty at Anfield are desperate to land him.
Here’s what has been said…
It's no problem! We've got Harry Wilson for next season and he's just as good if even better

Gotta be joking mate. We can’t afford to remain stagnant in our attacking options or it will come back to bite on our asses next season with Salah and Mane possibly reporting to national duties for a longer duration.

Keita all over again. Why let him stay another season when our team could benefit from him immediately?
