With every passing day, Timo Werner to Liverpool keeps gaining momentum and if we analyze the media buzz around the story, we will have to accept that it is no longer just another rumour. Liverpool are getting serious in their pursuit of the RB Leipzig striker and are reportedly in advanced talks with the German club over the deal.
According to Italian journalist Nicolo Schira, The negotiations to bring Werner to the Anfield are on as the Reds look to move to the front of the queue for the forward.
Liverpool are in advanced talks for Timo Werner. Reds are ready to pay the clause (€58M) to Leipzig and close the deal until April (when clause expires).”

It was reported this week that Liverpool have until the end of April to capitalise on the release clause in his current deal. Werner is said to be available for between £50million and £55m, should any club be willing to stump up the cash.
Liverpool are not the only team in the hunt though, with Manchester United and Chelsea among those also linked with a move for Werner. Werner has become the hottest property in the Bundesliga this season, having fired 20 goals in 22 matches.
