Liverpool have long been linked with RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner, but recently, Manchester United are putting their claim forth as well, according to reports.
The Champions League holders were apparently preparing to take advantage of Werner’s frustration over a failed transfer to Bayern Munich and move to bring him to Anfield in January, to further boost their attacking line. However, Mirror now report that United are ready to step in and hijack the deal for the 23-year-old, whose contract contains a buyout clause set at €30 million, believing that offering him a regular place in the starting XI will help them beat their arch-rivals to his signature.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team fell to a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Bournemouth on Saturday, and the fact that they failed to score at the Vitality has only highlighted their need for a prolific striker with Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku both gone without suitable replacements. Werner, on the other hand, had a fantastic game on the same day as his hat-trick helped Leipzig beat Mainz 05 by 8-0.
