Sadio Mane and Keita urge Leipzig striker Werner to join Liverpool
MANE and Keita have linked up to tell Timo Werner he should join them at Liverpool next season.
RB Leipzig star Werner is one of the most highly sought after front players in Europe after and could choose to stop the Bundesliga club this late spring.
The 22-year-old has just one more year left on his contract and Leipzig are unwilling to let him run his arrangement down and leave on a free transfer.
Bayern have already shown strong interest in the German international – but Liverpool manager is a huge fan and is looking at snapping him up.
And now Klopp’s players Keita and Mane have gone into bat for Liverpool trying to draw Werner to Anfield.
Speaking to Bild, former Leipzig star Keita said: « We played really well together at Leipzig, and he was a standout amongst my best mates.
« It’s clear – should he move, at that point I ask Timo to go along with us here at Liverpool. »
Sadio Mane added: « I’d advise him to join Liverpool.
« I like his style of play. Very forceful, good finish, always giving it 100 percent. On the off chance that he needs to go along with us, we’d welcome him to our group.
« When it was clear that Naby would join us, I frequently watched Leipzig matches.
