EPL: Liverpool Transfer Plan For Potential Summer Signing Revealed

According to popular German newspaper Sport Bild, Liverpool have outlined their plan for RB Leipzig attacker Timo Werner whom they want to sign in the summer.

It was revealed that Liverpool will send the petite German international back to RB Leipzig on loan when they sign him this summer.

The aforementioned report said that the Reds will sign the Germans this summer before sending him back on loan for the entirety of next season.

Liverpool are not the only club keen to sign Timo Werner who has scored 21 German Bundesliga goals this season in the colours of RB Leipzig.

Timo Werner and his RB Leipzig team are in the mix for the German Bundesliga title alongside defending champions Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund. Bayern Munich have won each of the last seven league titles.

Apart from Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester United have also been linked with the player who was part of the German squad that won the 2017 FIFA Confederation Cup.

Chelsea tried to sign Timo Werner during the January transfer window but the player opted to stay at RB Leipzig for the rest of this season.

The Blues also tried to sign Lyon striker Moussa Dembele and Napoli attacker Dries Mertens but they were unable to pull off a deal for any of these forwards. Chelsea didn’t sign anyone during the January transfer window.

Timo Werner and RB Leipzig are currently preparing for the crucial Champions League clash with Tottenham Hotspur who came close to winning the competition last season before they were beaten by reigning champions Liverpool 2-0 in the final.

RB Leipzig have a 1-0 lead from their first leg last 16 Champions League tie with Tottenham Hotspur in London last month. Timo Werner scored the only goal of the game in that first leg.

A draw from the second leg would be enough to take RB Leipzig through to the Champions League quarterfinals.
