The German attacker has long been linked with a move to Liverpool.
Liverpool fans on Twitter believe that Rhian Brewster’s proposed exit in January is a window for the club to sign Timo Werner.
According to The Echo, Reds boss Jurgen Klopp is willing to loan out the 19-year-old striker this winter.
That would leave Roberto Firmino and Divock Origi as Liverpool’s only number nines and another goalscorer is vital.
The Anfield club have a Premier League title to win and a Champions League to defend, and an injury to Firmino may be detrimental on both fronts.
Werner has long been linked with a move to Merseyside, and some Liverpool supporters believe that it could finally happy if and when Brewster is farmed out.
I can definitely see someone coming in January if Brewster is going on loan.— S.O.C (@ScorpioStevie) November 25, 2019
Timo Werner? @lfc
So. In january, Brewster on loan – Werner in. In summer – Origi leaves. In summer – Sancho in, Shaqiri out and Salah out – Mbappe in. Not so likely but still, not just a wild dream.— Jonthe (@jonthe) November 25, 2019

With Brewster destined to be loaned out January, would it actually mean we need reinforcements? Werner anyone?— Fawad Parvez (@fawadparvez) November 25, 2019
Timo Werner in Jan then https://t.co/BH5hbkozGW— Kiraan (@Lfc__vision) November 25, 2019
Leipzig’s sporting director Markus Krosche recently said this about Werner: “Timo just extended his contract with us recently, and we’re not thinking about letting him go at all.”
Does it mean Liverpool have no chance of signing him? Of course not.
With January on the horizon, sporting directors across the continent will be making declarations like this, but if the Reds show up with enough money then Werner can indeed be bought.
