Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp urged to complete £60m Timo Werner transfer

Liverpool legend John Aldridge has encouraged his former side to sign RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner to replace some of the fringe players who are likely to leave Anfield in the near future.

Werner has been in prolific form in the Bundesliga this season, scoring an impressive 20 goals in 19 matches, and the 23-year-old has been linked with a move away from Leipzig.

So far Liverpool have only acquired Japanese winger Takumi Minamino this month, but writing in his column in the Independent Aldridge said he would not be surprised to see them making a bid for Werner.

"I can see (Dejan) Lovren, (Adam) Lallana and (Xherdan) Shaqiri leaving, so Klopp will want to replace them with young and hungry players who fit into his mould," Aldridge said.

"Prolific Red Bull Leipzig striker Timo Werner would be a great option and the joy for Liverpool will be that every player will want to be part of their success story.

"I saw Paris Saint-Germain superstar Kylian Mbappe eulogising Liverpool in an interview a few days ago and it confirmed that the world’s greatest players are captivated by the story Klopp has pieced together.

"With the manager signing a contract to commit to the club for another four years, there is no reason why Liverpool cannot win trophy after trophy as they don't just have the best team in England but possibly Europe right now."
