The duo are on the chase to grab a solid goal scoring prodigy this summer and eyes Timo Werner to meet their satisfaction. Both Liverpool and Bayern Munich are in a tight contest to grab their respective titles this season and any slip in the disk will only allow the other to have a bite on the cherry. So, both feels serious to construct the front line in order to retrieve title challenging hope ahead of the new season.
Hence, Timo Werner is a name that is propelling in both club’s dressing room. The German is playing yet another fantastic season with RB Leipzig as his team is set to taste Champions league football once again after a year of absence since their promotion to the Bundesliga in 2016. Werner has managed to score 14 goals & above this season which looks like a sensational stat for a youngster to drag interest from highly budgetary clubs. Moreover, the former Stuttgart forward, who featured in the World Cup in Russia last year, has also stalled his contract extension talks with the club, expressing his interest in playing elsewhere in Europe.
In an interview with some famous media outlet, Leipzig chief executive Oliver Mintzlaff said: “It is well known that we want to extend with him, but he has signalled to us that he does not want to sign a new contract. We need to see what’s right for us and for Timo.”
It’s clear that Timo is unlikely to commit future to the club whose contract runs down in a year and according to the Liverpool Echo, the Merseyside outfit are ready to splash the cash on him, monitoring the growing allegations over his contract.
Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool have had a star turn in the last three seasons or so as the Reds managed to reach three major competitive finals but failed to win any of those. Now, there is growing importance to landing trophies in the cabinet as Liverpool are glazing with a star studded squad & hunting for the Premier League title. They trail City by a point. Anyway, the Reds’ success has been deeply constricted to their rock solid defense & the front three that contains some classy players like Mohammed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino. Amongst the trio, Firmino’s job is the most tiring one as he finds himself at Klopp’s tactical focal point.
The gaffer’s gegenpressing system works, with Firmino backtracking on opponents to recover possession or pushing the opposition goalkeeper to bring out the rigidity of press play. That also means the Brazilian will have to play every single game and almost the entirety of 90 minutes duration to value his effect on the team. This has led to fatigue & most recently injury concern that maybe is keeping him out for the Barcelona clash in the Champions League semi-final stage, a crucial game at Camp Nou.
So, Liverpool demands a full energy and quality striker in the forward line. Although Divock Origi and Sturiddge has replaced Firmino in the past with no drawback in the results achieved on the road, they aren’t the class anymore Klopp is looking to add to his team. So, Werner looks like a credible option. The problem the German works hard in and around the D-box but may find no importance in moving down and getting balls out of opposition feet. If that happens, Bayern Munich is the most favoured option Werner can take to feel like home, where he already resides, to display his best and also have a taste of playing in a high calibre team.

Nico Kovac’s team have finally shown some improvement on the ladder to secure yet another Bundesliga crown but inconsistency remains. This is mainly because their age-old growing striker is no longer looking like a Bavarian flare. Although Robert Lewandowski leads the scoring chart once more, his phenomenal game-play has changed and he very much wants a way out of the club as shown by Hus repeated training ground out bursts. Whether Bayern get the title or not, it is necessary that the German giants need to secure a star striker signing in the summer side by side their business at the back that looked mind blowing ahead of the new season.
It is now just a patience game for Werner whether he will run down the contract available and choose one of Liverpool & Bayern or stay put and help him grow for at least a couple of seasons at Leipzig.
