Liverpool target Timo Werner ‘available for just £25million’ due to clause

Liverpool could assert their likely title of Premier League winners by tempting one of the best young strikers in the world to move to Anfield from the Bundesliga in the summer.

Timo Werner has 27 goals to his name in just 33 outings so far this season with RB Leipzig challenging for both domestic and Champions League glory, but they could be about to lose their star forward.

The 23-year-old recently spoke of his pride at being linked with the reigning European champions, and Jurgen Klopp’s side might be able to secure his signature without breaking at the bank.

Sport1 have reported that a release clause that was preciously thought to be worth £50m is actually worth only half of that, with any additional costs coming in the form of performance-based bonuses.

Werner told ViasportFotball of reported linking him with a move to Anfield earlier this month: “Yes I know that Liverpool is the best team in the world at the moment.

“When you're linked with that team it makes you very proud but in case of that, it's a pleasure, but I know Liverpool have a lot of good players.

“I have to improve myself and to learn much more things to get on this level and to play there.”

And speaking to Sky Germany, he later added: “Jurgen Klopp is the best coach in the world.

“There is a lot to suggest that my style of play would suit there (Liverpool).”

Liverpool moved to within a four wins of their first Premier League title with a battling 3-2 victory over West Ham on Monday evening, with Klopp amazed at his sides record run of 18 consecutive league victories.

"It's so special. The numbers are incredible, so difficult. I said we wanted to write our own stories, create our own history," said Klopp.

"Obviously, the boys took that really seriously and that is all cool but just not too important at the moment.

"We are just in the situation and want to recover and prepare for the next game."

"I couldn't have wished for a better position to go into these last 11 games," Klopp added.

"I never thought it was possible but each one of [the victories are] really difficult."
