Liverpool star Sadio Mane has revealed he’d be more than happy to welcome Timo Werner to Anfield this summer.
What’s the story?
Well, Liverpool have been linked with Werner constantly due to his pace, movement and versatility, all of which make him a perfect Jurgen Klopp player.
The 22 year-old could be a replacement for Daniel Sturridge and Divock Origi, both of whom are expected to leave this summer.
Now, Mane has spoken out about his desire for the club to bring Werner to Liverpool.
As quoted by ESPN, he told Sport Bild: “I’d advise him to join Liverpool. I like his style of play. Very forceful, good finish, always giving it 100 per cent. If he wants to join us, we’d welcome him to our team.”
Mane went on to say that the young striker had stood out when he watched RB Leipzig last season, echoing the sentiments of Werner’s former teammate Naby Keita, who also thinks Werner should swap Leipzig for Merseyside, per the ESPN report.

Would he be a good fit?
This transfer is almost too obvious in terms of the connections between the clubs and the Reds’ need for another centre forward.
With Sturridge and Origi both set to follow Dominic Solanke out the Anfield exit door, Klopp will have to invest up front to improve his squad depth, and Werner’s ability to play on the wings or through the middle kills two birds with one stone.
Then there is the fact that Keita and Werner are good friends, Mane is chipping in to lure the striker to Anfield, and on top of all that he has just one year left on his contract after this season ends.
The 22 year-old has struck an incredible 55 goals and 20 assists in 101 games for RB Leipzig, and also has nine goals in 23 Germany caps.
Agents Mane and Keita are on the case, and this one looks like another genius Liverpool transfer in the offing.
