Erling Håland’s next club has been the subject of much speculation in recent months. With the striker proving prodigious in front of goal there have been teams lining up to sign him from Red Bull Salzburg. According to journalist Kevin Palmer, Håland has decided to head to RB Leipzig. If the transfer goes through it could trigger a Liverpool move for Timo Werner.
Every man and his dog has been linked with a move for Erling Håland. The Express reported that Jürgen Klopp was one of those wanting to sign the 19-year-old Norwegian striker.
With an incredible 41 goals in 28 games this season, whoever lands the towering forward will be buying a ready made goal machine. According to Kevin Palmer it is Salzburg’s sister club RB Leipzig that have won the race for Håland, the journalist also points out that the move would certainly point towards a Timo Werner exit.
Transfers guru Ian McGarry reported that he believes Liverpool could move for Werner as soon as January. If Håland moves to Germany then this prediction could come good.
With Liverpool having already reportedly agreed a deal in principle for Takumi Minamino, to also bring in Timo Werner in January would be a massive statement of intent; the Reds would be a terrifying prospect heading into the business end of the season.
If there is one area with for improvement for Jürgen Klopp is is depth in attack. At the minute we only have one recognised backup striker. We are desperate for offensive reinforcements to help keep Roberto Firmino both fit and on his toes.
