Liverpool are reportedly looking to launch a move for James Rodriguez to replace Philippe Coutinho’s creative genius while the Reds are also interested in Timo Werner.
Even though some take joy in the fact Coutinho’s £142 million switch to Barcelona has not panned out the way he would have liked, there’s no denying the Reds miss his creativity and ability to score a goal out of nowhere.
Reports from Spain claim that Liverpool are set to move for James Rodriguez and while I highly doubt that this is true even if the Reds hold an interest in the Colombian, he would be a fine addition to Jurgen Klopp’s squad.
A little bit closer to home, the Mirror cites ‘suggestions in Germany‘ that claim Liverpool have already bid for Rodriguez.
Elsewhere in the talent-overflowing-Bundesliga, Liverpool are keen on RB Leipzig forward Timo Werner and are apparently looking to bring him in and reshuffle the front four slightly if Roberto Firmino’s deeper role of late is anything to go by.
German news outlet Bild state that Liverpool are interested in the German forward but face competition from Spurs, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund.
If Michael Edwards was able to sign Werner for Klopp, the former BVB boss would arguably have the best forward line in Europe with Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Firmino and Werner all occupying those forward roles.
