Liverpool’s pursuit of Timo Werner is likely to be successful, according to the latest reports.

News surfaced this week that any interested parties in the RB Leipzig striker have under a fortnight to trigger the £49m release clause before it expires.

The Germany international has smashed 32 goals in 44 appearances for club and country this season.

The 24-year-old’s prolific record has seen him attract interest from the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United, as well as Liverpool.

Due to the financial impact the coronavirus pandemic has had on football, there were suggestions that the Reds were unwilling to meet Leipzig’s demands.

However, more recent reports claim that Liverpool have agreed personal terms with Werner on a 5-year deal worth roughly £140,000-a-week.

Anfield is the striker’s personal preference in terms of a move to the Premier League, and according to the Transfer Window Podcast’s Ian McGarry, a deal for the forward is all but complete.
