Liverpool FC have contacted RB Leipzig about the possibility of signing RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner, according to a report in Germany.
German media outlet Bild, as quoted by the Liverpool Echo, is reporting that the Reds are interested in a potential deal to sign the Germany international this summer.
The same article states that the Merseyside outfit have been asked to be kept informed about any developments involving Werner’s future at the Bundesliga outfit.
According to the same story, Liverpool FC boss Klopp is thought to be a big admirer of the 23-year-old striker after his promising performances in the German top flight.
However, Werner has also been linked with a potential switch to RB Leipzig’s rivals Bayern Munich, the same story explains.
Liverpool FC will take on Bayern in the second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie at the Allianz Arena next Wednesday.
The Reds have drawn four of their last seven games in the Premier League to relinquish control of the title race.
