Timo Werner

Premier League leaders Liverpool are reportedly plotting a move for highly rated RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner.

This is according to the latest reports coming out of the media in the United Kingdom.

Timo Werner is one of the leading marksmen on the German Bundesliga scene.

According to the specific report from the Daily Express, Liverpool is planning a move for the 50m-rated forward.

Liverpool and German Bundesliga club RB Leipzig already have a good working relationship from the Naby Keita deal in 2018.

RB Leipzig and Liverpool agreed a 55 million pounds deal for Guinean international Naby Keita in the summer of 2017 before the player spent one more season with the Germans.

The midfielder didn’t link up with his new club until the summer of 2018.

Naby Keita has had to battle with injuries in his time at Liverpool.

He recently returned to the team from injury and was part of the Carabao Cup squad that booked a quarterfinal spot in the competition on Wednesday night via the penalty shootout win over North London giants Arsenal.

The Daily Express revealed that Liverpool want to follow the model employed to sign Naby Keita for the Timo Werner transfer.

Liverpool are working on an agreement for Timo Werner with the aim of reaching a deal for them to sign the German and loan him back to RB Leipzig until next summer.

Krzysztof Piatek

Manchester United have turned their attention to AC Milan striker Krzysztof Piatek in the bid to solve their attacking problems following the injury to star player Marcus Rashford.

This is according to the report from The Athletic which revealed that the Red Devils have already made an inquiry over the £30m-rated striker.

Marcus Rashford has scored 19 goals since the start of this season in the colours of Manchester United and the England international has been the talisman and go-to player for the Red Devils this season.

The Manchester United Academy product might miss up to three months after he aggravated the stress fracture in his back during a recent game against Wolves.

The aforementioned publication said that Manchester United want to sign Polish international Piatek on loan for the rest of this season and AC Milan will only sanction a move for the striker if the Red Devils will sign him permanently at the end of the loan deal.

Piatek is also a target for Jose Mourinho and Tottenham Hotspur. The striker has scored five goals in 19 appearances for AC Milan this season and he has lost his central striker position at the club to Zlatan Ibrahimovic who returned to the club this month.

Manchester United are reportedly keen to launch an assault on French Ligue 1 giants Lyon for their star striker Moussa Dembele.

Tottenham Hotspur also tried to sign the Frenchman in a swap deal that would see them take Kenyan international midfielder Victor Wanyama from the North London club.

The North Londoners were turned down by Lyon after they made that swap deal offer.

Manchester United are the latest club to make play for Moussa Dembele who could be the man to take the pressure off the club in terms of goals.
