The reigning European champions and Premier League leaders have been repeatedly linked with the Bundesliga star who has scored 20 goals in 20 league appearances this season.

Timo Werner has put his potential transfer suitors Liverpool on alert by stating that his next career move could take him to the English Premier League.

The RB Leipzig striker has been in the form of his life this season as he has already scored 20 goals in the same number of Bundesliga appearances this term.

His sensational form for Die Roten Bullen has enabled the side to mount a serious title challenge, with Julian Nagelsmann’s men currently sitting just 1 point off league leaders Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga table after 20 games on the board.

Apart from Liverpool, who are reportedly monitoring the 23-year-old, the likes of Real Madrid and Chelsea are also keeping tabs on the player many believe could be the next big thing to come out of German football.

Quoting German news outlet Kicker, Caught Offside reports that that the player admitted in an interview that English football fascinates him.

“When you score 20 goals as a 23-year-old in a season, then, of course, there is interest. That’s clear,” Werner said while giving an interview to Kicker.

“I can generally imagine playing abroad one day, although I don’t have any specific club where I want to be. I am open for everything.

“I was in America for a holiday recently and English football was on all the time. That’s an exclamation mark for the Premier League.

“But there are also big, famous clubs, and it would certainly be fun playing there.”

Why the German would be a perfect signing for Liverpool?

Although Liverpool have their front-three firing on all cylinders this season, the potential signing of Werner would add further ruthlessness to their squad.

The German striker has shown this season that he has what it takes to be ruthless in front of goal while also tracking back and helping defenders when his side have their backs against the wall.

His undeniable work-rate marks Werner as one of the few players in Europe who already play at a tempo that Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp demands from his players.

Part of the reason why that’s the case is that Nagelsmann, who joined RB Leipzig last summer, sets his team in much the same way as Klopp does with his sides.

Therefore, if Klopp could convince Werner to come to Liverpool as a squad player, the 23-year-old would add another dimension to an already prolific attack force.
