Why Timo Werner is perfect for Liverpool

Why Timo Werner is perfect for Liverpool

Everyone knows all about Timo Werner.  He’s been perpetually linked with a move to Liverpool ever since his debut season with RB Leipzig. Over recent weeks, the noise has increased and it feels as though it’s a matter of when and not if the German international makes the switch to Merseyside.  However, many aren’t appreciating just how useful Werner would be for Liverpool. He’s being pigeonholed as a goalscorer and nothing more. That isn’t necessarily a negative, some players build …

Bobby Firmino vs Timo Werner: Can Klopp Have His Cake and Eat It with Forward Duo?

When a legend speaks, it usually pays to listen. So when former Liverpool midfield maestro Didi Hamann weighed in on the Timo Werner debate, there were plenty of ears lent to the German’s opinion. Speaking on The Football Show with Jamie Redknapp and Jamie Carragher, Hamann queried where his compatriot would fit into Jurgen Klopp’s starting eleven, and echoed the sentiments of many who believe that a link-up frontman like Bobby Firmino – rather than an out-and-out striker like Werner …

3 positions Liverpool need to strengthen this summer to become invincible

Football should soon return from its current state of paralysis and Liverpool will be given the opportunity to finally wrap-up their first Premier League title. The Reds currently sit a staggering 25 points clear of Manchester City at the top of the table having lost just one of their 29 league games so it's just a matter of when, not if, Liverpool secure the title and end their 30-year drought. Liverpool are already 5/6 favourites with the bookmakers to retain …

Why Liverpool might be interested in Victor Osimhen

You can tell football is close to a return. Transfer rumours are slowly starting to emerge with greater regularity. The usual suspects have been on the agenda for Liverpool with Timo Werner and his release clause dominating talk. Mario Gotze and his contract situation has seen him linked with a reunion with Jurgen Klopp. But perhaps the most interesting report over recent days has been the one claiming the table toppers are interested in Lille forward Victor Osimhen.  The 21-year-old …
Would Timo Werner be a Tactical Fit for Liverpool?

Would Timo Werner be a Tactical Fit for Liverpool?

Timo Werner is having quite the season. Well, that’s understating it profoundly. He’s actually made the Bundesliga his personal marksman range, scoring all sorts of goals – from volleys to tap-ins to his signature cut in and emphatic thwack. It’s that last one, the stylistic replica of Arjen Robben’s masterful trademark (but from the other flank) that has been most tactically interesting this season. Werner is nominally a striker, but under Julien Nagelsmann, has become so much more than that. …
Clearing Up Timo Werner Myths

Clearing Up Timo Werner Myths

Timo Werner has not done much in recent days to quell rumours of a summer switch to Liverpool. Twice in the last week alone, the Red Bull Leipzig striker has publicly stated his admiration for Jurgen Klopp and talked up his ability to fit into his fellow Germans tactical set up at Anfield. Following Leipzig's 1-0 Champions League away victory away to Tottenham Hotspur last Wednesday, the 23 year old -- in perfectly fluent English -- had no hesitation in …

Reasons why Liverpool can sign Werner, Sancho and Havertz

It feels as though Liverpool are the only top team not allowed to have more than eleven good players. Whenever there’s a link to a top player, the media and countless pundits pipe up to claim they’d struggle to break into Jurgen Klopp’s starting XI so they shouldn’t be signed.  It’s happened recently with Timo Werner. He’s been linked with a move to Merseyside for the best part of three years now but reports claiming he’s set to leave RB …

How does Timo Werner fit into the Liverpool team

The Timo Werner links are back. According to reports in Germany, Liverpool are one a host of clubs keeping close tabs on the RB Leipzig forward after his explosive start to the season. Under new manager Julian Nagelsmann, the Germany international looks more dangerous than ever before and already has 12 goal involvements in just ten Bundesliga matches.  It’s not the first time the Reds have been linked with the 23-year-old and you can’t see it being the last if …
Finding the perfect forward to add to the Liverpool squad

Finding the perfect forward to add to the Liverpool squad

Liverpool went into the summer transfer window looking to add attacking reinforcements. Fans wanted it to happen. Journalists mentioned the need for a fourth attacker.  French media linked the Reds with Nicolas Pepe, German press claimed Timo Werner was a target for the European champions while reports in Spain said Philippe Coutinho was set for a return to Merseyside. Yet when the window closed, Jurgen Klopp hadn’t added any attacking reinforcements.  It’s still early days, but the decision not to …
Where Do Liverpool Most Need Strengthening?

Where Do Liverpool Most Need Strengthening?

Has there ever been a sensible Liverpool transfer window? No. Well, there’s that sorted, do remember to follow me on Twitter, and stay tuned to any further luminary bits. But that’s not enough, is it? Why, for example, if Liverpool have just won a Champions League final, and have already reported back to pre-season for a day or two, aren’t they already three signings into an emboldened, balls-to-the-wall transfer window? Well, possibly because to catch their only direct competitors, they …
