Jurgen Klopp held a “meeting” with Red Bull Leipzig striker Timo Werner as Liverpool step up their transfer interest, it has been claimed.

The Reds continue to be strongly linked with a move for the German international, who showed his quality again with a hat-trick in Leipzig’s 5-0 win over Mainz on Sunday.

The 24-year-old now has 30 goals in all competitions, including 24 in the Bundesliga which leaves him three behind top scorer Robert Lewandowski at Bayern Munich.
