Loads of Liverpool fans have been reacting with excitement to a transfer update on Timo Werner, as The Athletic report the Reds are stepping up their interest in the Germany international.
According to the report from The Athletic’s Simon Johnson, the Reds have ramped up their interest in Werner, forcing Chelsea to look elsewhere. The Blues had been linked with a move for the RB Leipzig speedster, but after previous claims from The Athletic stated Werner is waiting for Jurgen Klopp to make his move, it seems the Stamford Bridge outfit are now out of the running.
Chelsea will instead target Lyon striker Moussa Dembele, and it’s fair to say Liverpool fans are excited about the latest update in the Werner saga. Boasting 27 goals and 12 assists this season, the 24 year-old has been constantly flirting with a switch to Anfield, so the claim that Liverpool have taken another step towards the move by nudging out Chelsea surely suggests a summer swoop is well and truly on the cards.
