Liverpool target Timo Werner admits playing at Anfield would be “special”

22 March 2017

Despite saying he is happy at current club RB Leipzig, reported Liverpool transfer target Timo Werner has admitted Anfield has something “special” about it.


The 21-year-old has been a key man in Leipzig’s remarkable Bundesliga season, with Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side second in the table, despite only being promoted from 2.Bundesliga last year.

Werner has scored 14 goals in just 23 appearances in 2016/17, as well as registering six assists, and his performances are rumoured to have caught the eye of Jurgen Klopp.

The Liverpool manager will be looking to add quality in attacking areas this summer, and Werner’s profile suits Klopp.

Although it looks as though the German youngster will stay at Leipzig for the time being, Werner has spoken fondly about Anfield as a place.

“If you were to play at Anfield and hear the fans sing ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone,’ it would certainly be something special,” Werner told Sport Bild.

“England has a different feel, but I am also still young player. I feel at home here at RB right now. Leipzig can continue to grow, and if I could be part it I’d be delighted.”

Liverpool supporters could get an opportunity to see Werner firsthand on Wednesday night, as Germany take on England at Signal Iduna Park.

The forward is yet to make his international debut, but with certain key attackers missing, such as Mesut Ozil, there is every chance he will feature prominently.

Full of energy off the ball, quality on it and with ever-improving end product, the Leipzig man is one of Europe’s most exciting young attackers.

While his immediate future looks to lie in his homeland, don’t rule out Klopp one day making him the club’s latest star signing.
