Liverpool’s attacking department does not need significant boosting due to the prolific nature of Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.
However, something that was evident in the Champions League final, which the Reds lost 3-1 to Real Madrid in Kiev, was that Jurgen Klopp does not have good enough players as back-ups.
Throughout the majority of the campaign, the Merseyside outfit were lucky to avoid long-lasting injuries to the front three, but if that had occurred, the club’s positive season may have turned out differently.
If Klopp wants strength in depth then he should consider taking a glance over at RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner.
The 22-year-old had a very impressive campaign by scoring 21 goals and creating 10 assists in 45 appearances in all competitions.
Werner would certainly provide decent competition for places, and he would be a strong option to bring off the bench.
If Liverpool were to make a move, they should consider swooping sooner rather than later due to the likelihood that Werner’s stock will rise if he has a decent World Cup with Germany in Russia.
Given the Reds’ style of play and need for extra quality, is Werner the type of forward that they should be targeting?
