Liverpool planning surprise move for No.11 forward

Liverpool are plotting a surprise raid on arch-rivals Chelsea this summer for the signing of Timo Werner. Liverpool are on the lookout for a replacement for Sadio Mane and have seemingly identified the German centre-forward as an option.

Timo signed for the Blues in the summer of 2020, arriving from Bundesliga giants RB Leipzig. Werner had been linked with a move to Anfield back then as well, but he opted to snub Liverpool in favour of a move to Chelsea.

Indeed, Timo has managed a return of only 23 goals in 89 games for the Blues so far in his two seasons with the club. Of those 23, only ten have come in the PL despite the attacker playing 56 times in the tournament.

And Germany international, too, could follow Lukaku through the exit doors, with the Reds presenting themselves as a potential destination for the 26-year-old centre-forward. The Reds are staring at a complete revamp of their frontline this summer.

Furthermore, Origi has also left the Reds for Milan, while Takumi Minamino is on the verge of joining Monaco. It has prompted the German manager to look for options in the market to strengthen his frontline.

Luis Diaz arrived in winter from Porto before Liverpool signed Fabio Carvalho from Fulham and Darwin Nunez from Benfica earlier this summer. However, in light of Sadio Mane’s departure and continued speculation about Mohamed Salah’s situation, another attacking signing cannot be ruled out at this point.
