3 reasons why Liverpool should sign Timo Werner in the summer
Liverpool have been dominant in the first half of the 2018/19 season and have been at the top of the table since November. But there are some major issues which they need to sort out. If Liverpool are to bring home the Premier League trophy this season, Jurgen Klopp would be looking to bring in some reinforcements and strengthen his already strong side.
Liverpool's issues start from the back as Fabinho has had to fill in at the center back position for their last two games. Injuries to Dejan Lovern, Joel Matip and Joe Gomez have left Liverpool light at that end of the field.
But the real area they need to strengthen is at the top of the pitch. Up front, while Liverpool do have Roberto Firmino, the Brazilian isn't an out-and-out goalscorer.
The Reds could do with a natural striker up top and one who Klopp trusts, as Divock Origi and Daniel Sturridge have been far too inconsistent of late.
Firmino recently got injured in the game against Manchester United at Old Trafford after twisting his ankle. Liverpool didn't look like scoring once he left the field.
Meanwhile, there is one striker over in Germany setting the Bundesliga alight with his performances.
Here we take a look at 3 reasons why Liverpool should sign Timo Werner from Leipzig in the summer:
#3 Integration into the current XI
Timo Werner has been playing for RB Leipzig in the German Bundesliga for some time now and has been their main man when it comes to goals. Leipzig play a 4-2-2-2, fast-paced & high pressing system where they look to rob the possession from the other team and hit them on the counter with great pace.
Liverpool also deploy a similar system in the Premier League. Timo Werner's integration into the current Liverpool XI should seem pretty seamless and the Reds would operate with a formidable trio of Werner, Salah & Mane up front with Firmino sitting just behind the striker as a No. 10.
Since Werner is already used to playing in such a system, he should take no time in settling into the Liverpool side.
