Liverpool are reportedly planning a transfer swoop for RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner this summer.

Werner has scored 25 goals in 29 appearances for the Bundesliga title challengers this season, attracting the attention of clubs across Europe including Manchester United and Chelsea.

Also among those clubs are Liverpool, who will lose Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah for up to six weeks next season due to the Africa Cup of Nations taking place in January and February.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp will therefore need striker cover, and is targeting Werner as well as a left-back to provide competition to Andy Robertson, according to The Athletic.
