Werner continues Liverpool flirt

Timo Werner of RB Leipzig has been sending Liverpool all sorts of ‘come and get me’ pleas lately.

In a post-match interview after his penalty strike in North London earned Leipzig advantage over Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League round of 16 on Wednesday, he named the Champions League holders as the best team in the world and admitted he would have to improve in order to play there regularly. He was later warned by Leipzig head coach Julian Nagelsmann that his significance would be notably less at Liverpool than at his current club, but that did not stop the Germany international from continuing his flirt with the Merseysiders.

Werner scored in his team’s 0-5 triumph away to Schalke on Saturday, and speaking to Sky in Germany afterwards, he said Liverpool had the best coach in the world in Jurgen Klopp and expressed his view that his style of play would suit the Premier League runaway leaders well. However, he added that there’s still plenty to do with Leipzig.

Many believe that all this points towards ongoing talks about the 23-year-old’s potential move to Anfield in the summer, but for the moment it all remains in the realm of speculation.
