Liverpool hero John Aldridge reckons Jurgen Klopp will sign Timo Werner and one other player this summer. The Reds have been tipped to spend at the end of the season. Liverpool are on course to win their first Premier League title, providing the coronavirus pandemic doesn’t see the season cancelled.
Despite their success with Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino, the Reds have been heavily linked with RB Leipzig striker Werner.
The Germany international has publicly revealed his desire to head to Anfield to play under his countryman Klopp.
And Aldridge says Liverpool will sign Werner and one other big name this summer.
He wrote in his Liverpool Echo column: “I think Liverpool fans can look forward to one or two big names in the transfer window this summer.
“Jurgen Klopp, like he always has done, has to look for players who are as good or better than he has. No squad padding this summer.
“Up front is probably the big area. At the moment, behind that three of Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah, there is only Divock Origi and Takumi Minamino who are playing regularly.
“Liverpool will need another but that one player has to be absolute top drawer. For me, there is only one who fits the bill perfectly.
“That player is Timo Werner. All day long for me.
“Whenever I have seen him, he looks like the one for the Reds.
“For the prices you hear quoted for players, the likes of Kylian Mbappe and Jadon Sancho, in this climate, Werner seems the ideal option.

“Where else is Klopp going to strengthen? He has Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in the attacking midfield area, so the squad is very settled at the minute.
“I would suggest another left-back that can push Andy Robertson and a top centre-forward.
“Will he go out and get a world-class attacker? We will wait and see but Liverpool have designs to win the lot now.”
Werner has also been linked with a move to Manchester United and Barcelona.
However, it’s claimed the striker would rather head to Anfield to team up with Klopp.
