Liverpool still searching for a new forward 3 Comments


TRANSFER RUMOURS: Liverpool’s summer search for a new forward continues. This time there is renewed speculation linking the Reds with an approach for RB Leipzig hotshot Timo Werner.

Alexandre Lacazette has re-emerged as a rumoured target as his proposed move to Atletico Madrid is potentially falling apart due to transfer restrictions. Werner has been linked with a switch to Anfield for a while and now appears a more realistic target.

According to the Independent, Werner makes up a summer wish-list compiled by Jurgen Klopp as the boss looks to strengthen his squad ahead of a return to European football next season.

Much has already been said about other names on the list, including Southampton captain Virgil van Dijk and Werner’s Leipzig team-mate Naby Keita. That pair alone could easily cost £100m.

Hull’s Andrew Robertson has become a target once more at left-back after Liverpool gave up on trying to sign 17-year-old Fulham prodigy Ryan Sessegnon.

But as a typical striker, Werner could provide the Reds with something they’ve been missing.

Klopp employed a false nine system for most of 2016/17, with Philippe Coutinho, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino making up a fluid front three.

A player like Werner, who scored 21 Bundesliga goals during the German campaign and finished as the division’s fourth top scorer, provides a different option. That will be so crucial with multiple competitions in 2017/18.

    I visit this website regularly, it is actually really good!! I honestly don’t think we need a new forward who plays centrally, think a new wide man would be much better.
