This summer we can expect big things at Anfield. Michael Edwards will be hard as work shifting the deadwood for extortionate amounts of money, spending his riches on some more quality depth and variety for the first time. We believe Liverpool should consider signing Moussa Dembele as well as Timo Werner, not instead of.
The Reds have been linked with Werner for forever and a day.
The German forward’s arrival on Merseyside is increasingly looking like a matter of when not if.
With a fee of around £50m being mooted due to his release clause, he seems like a relative bargain in the modern market.
Due to Divock Origi being tipped to leave the club in the summer by The Mirror, we believe that Liverpool should sign Moussa Dembele to bolster the ranks up top.
Timo Werner is more than capable of playing on the left wing, he’s turned out six times there for Leipzig this season.
Rotation is key next season, it would be wise to see Werner as competition and variety for both Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane. It follows that with Origi rumoured to be on the way out, another striker should come in.
If Liverpool were to sign Moussa Dembele he would be the plan B that we need up top. He is strong in the air, has pace to burn and is a deadly finisher.
This season the 23-year-old has 16 goals in 24 starts in Ligue 1 in France. His young age means he still has a long way to come in the game, he will only get better.
Sky Sports reported that Chelsea are in pursuit and that Lyon will want £83m for the forward – we can expect Michael Edwards to negotiate a significant discount and this price would be offset even further by the sale of Divock Origi.
With Werner and Dembele added to our current front three, The Reds would be utterly unstoppable.
