Deal on: Liverpool in pole position to sign €65million in-demand star

Liverpool are locked in a tight battle to sign Timo Werner from RB Leipzig next summer.

Jurgen Klopp is angling towards hauling in a number of talented options in the summer and Werner, who has been in decent form for Leipzig has been mooted as targeted by the former Dortmund boss.

Reds top the table, four points off holders Manchester City and are looking to prove an even better point next season when the Premier League kicks off, again, in August.

Reports floating about in German have credited Bundesliga side Bayern Munich as having an interest in 22-year-old Werner.

Bayern are playing catch up with table toppers Borussia Dortmund, six points off the North Rhine-Westphalia outfit this campaign.

Manager Niko Kovac has reportedly spotted Werner as a good addition to his side next season. But the Bavarians will have to fend off Liverpool who have emerged as their strongest opponents in the three-horse race for his services.

Dortmund are also keen on signing the star, but it is Liverpool who pose as the greatest threat to Bayern’s hope. The Reds can completely douse and dash their hopes if they win the Premier League this season.

Liverpool’s hope of landing Werner who has refused to pen a extended deal at Leipzig is hinged upon stowing the Premier League this campaign, away from Manchester City.
