The Reds are set to bring in one Leipzig star this summer as Naby Keita will finally join the club, having agreed to snap up the midfielder back in August.
However, Liverpool could yet raid the Bundesliga side in another big-money swoop this summer, as Keita's teammate Timo Werner is understood to be a big target.
Bild report that Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is determined to bring Werner to Anfield this summer, and could launch a move for the German international striker which would cost somewhere in the region of €100million (£87million).
Where does Werner fit in?
Werner, 21, has been a sensation for Leipzig since making a 2016 move from Stuttgart, hitting 39 goals in 67 games for the club whilst also becoming a regular for the German national team.
The pacey striker, known for his movement in the final third, would hand Liverpool yet another dangerous attacking threat alongside Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah.
However, that would then raise questions about who plays where, with Werner certainly best as a central striker, rather than being shoved out wide.
Klopp could switch to a 4-2-3-1 system, using Firmino behind Werner, but the narrow nature of Mane and Salah means Liverpool could be somewhat crowded in such a setup, and Klopp would certainly have to find a way to use Werner correctly if he spends a club-record fee on him.
