Liverpool To Battle Chelsea For Werner

RB Leipzig's Timo Werner celebrates scoring

Liverpool and Chelsea are going head-to-head in a ­£60million battle to sign RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner.

Chelsea have already opened ­negotiations for the German international, who has struck 18 goals in 17 ­Bundesliga appearances so far this season.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is a long-time ­admirer of the 23-year-old goal-machine and was ­keeping his powder dry for the summer before making any bids for the player.

But Chelsea’s move in the January window, following the lifting of their FIFA transfer ban, has triggered ­immediate interest at Anfield.
