Liverpool are close to agreeing personal terms with RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner, transfer expert Ian McGarry claims.
He said: “This (Werner) is a guy who since he signed from Stuttgart in 2016 has scored 60 goals in only 108 appearances – so he’s got a very good goals-to-games ratio.
“(He’s a) 23-year-old German international, has been interesting Liverpool for a long time.
“As we all know on the Transfer Window Podcast, and our educated listeners know this as well, when a player refuses to sign a new contract it’s usually because he’s got an agreement in place somewhere else.
“My information is Liverpool are very close to agreeing personal terms with Werner.
“Obviously they have been lacking a natural No 9 out-and-out striker for some time.”
Werner, who has notched 60 goals in 108 appearances for Leipzig since joining from Stuttgart in 2016, is due to become a free agent in 14 months’ time.
Leipzig may therefore have to cash in to the highest bidder this summer, with Bayern Munich and Liverpool considered to be the leading candidates to sign the 23-year-old.
