Forward signing

At the moment there is little to no competition and depth in the front line.

The Reds are in desperate need of quality up top.

This is because currently the lack of depth and competition is causing complacency and fatigue.

Our star forwards don’t have to worry about losing their place and they’re often run into the ground.

Now is the time to add a lethal touch to the attack, a natural striker to provide an alternative to Roberto Firmino’s false nine role.

Liverpool pursuit of Timo Werner

Last summer it seemed nailed on that Liverpool would sign Timo Werner.

We were linked with the RB Leipzig forward all season.

His final campaign in Germany saw him net 28 goals and bag eight assists.

Needless to say, we were excited. In many fans’ minds it was a done deal.

He flirted with us in the media, all of the reliable journalists confirmed our interest.

The pandemic hit, our finances took a blow. Chelsea swooped in and signed him for £47.5m. We were heartbroken.

Werner open to exit

90Min has reported that Timo Werner is open to leaving Chelsea this summer.

The German had a torrid time up top for the West London side last term.

Expected to replicate his Bundesliga form he managed a paltry six goals in the Premier League.

According to 90Min he would prefer a move to the Bundesliga as he is unhappy with Chelsea’s open pursuit of another striker.

Liverpool should act by snapping Timo Werner up for a bargain fee.

Chelsea are clearly trying to offset the cost of a megabucks move for Erling Haaland.

We should take their German flop off their hands and let Jürgen Klopp turn him into the superstar he was always meant to be.

Werner and Klopp appeared a match made in heaven, it’s about time they linked up.

Considering the forward wants out, this should be a no-brainer.
