Liverpool made contact with RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner during the recent January transfer window, according to Bild, as cited by Sports Mole.

Werner, who has scored 25 goals in 30 games across all competitions this season for Leipzig, has been linked with a move to Liverpool in various reports.

The recent report from Bild suggests that Liverpool did make contact with Werner in January, as they were looking to sign the forward.

Liverpool were interested in completing a deal now, and then loaning Werner back to Leipzig for the remainder of the season.

With the amount of talk that there is regarding Werner to Anfield, one does feel that there is a possibility that this deal could eventually happen.

The German striker would be a terrific signing. Werner has the ability to be ruthless in front of goal, which is a trait all the best strikers possess.

The issue will be convincing Werner to start off as a squad player. The only way Werner could become a regular in Jurgen Klopp’s XI from the beginning is if Roberto Firmino were to play in behind Werner, which is certainly a possibility.

Werner has a £51 million release clause in his Leipzig contract, according to the Daily Mail, as cited by Sports Mole.
