2. Timo Werner

Timo Werner appeared to be Liverpool’s main transfer target at one point in time and it was clear to see why. There were many pull factors that attracted Jurgen Klopp to his countryman.

Werner is the type of player that can pretty much guarantee double figures in goals and/or assists, as he has done so in Germany. This is something which the Liverpool attack prides themselves on, as they have dominated some of the best teams in the world courtesy of their hungry nature.

Werner is also a very versatile player and he can play essentially anywhere across the front-three. This makes him an attractive proposition to Jurgen Klopp since the main downfall in the squad is the lack of cover they have in each of the three attacking positions. Werner would provide that.

It’s also an added bonus that Werner is nowhere near the prime stages of his career yet he has proven capable of playing at Europe’s highest level. He is just 24 years old, meaning he is still some time away from his peak. Should Liverpool sign him, there would be plenty of time for Klopp to mould him into the player he so wishes.
