Liverpool are stacked with plenty of firepower in attacking positions but recent reports hint that Jurgen Klopp is eager to add to his forward line.
Klopp’s decision to switch up his system this season to include Salah at the spearhead of his attacking unit has paid dividends thus far.
Liverpool sit at the top of the table as they prepare to travel to Manchester City tomorrow evening, but a recent report hints that Klopp is refusing to rest on his laurels despite his side’s obvious proficiency in front of goal.
According to a recent report from German media outlet Abendzeitung (via Belfast Telegraph), Liverpool have sent scouts to watch RB Leipzig attacker Timo Werner in action, with their most recent trip to assess the centre-forwards credentials arriving in December when he bagged two goals against Borussia Monchengladbach.
Roberto Firmino’s recent hat-trick against Arsenal arrived as a timely reminder of his goal scoring credentials and Klopp will certainly be in no rush to sign a new forward player.
However, Werner is one of the brightest attackers on the continent and his electric approach is one which is well aligned with Klopp’s high-press philosophy, so it would be no surprise if the Reds eventually launched a bid for the £58.5 million rated man (as per Transfermarkt).
And after seeing the German international in full flow in the Bundesliga Liverpool’s scouts will surely be convinced that he is a target worth pursuing.
At just 22-years-old Werner is exactly the type of long-term transfer target Liverpool should be targeting to continue on the upward trajectory they currently find themselves on.
