John Aldridge is hoping that Liverpool seal the deal for Timo Werner in the summer as he perfectly fits the bill for Jurgen Klopp’s system.

RB Leipzig forward Timo Werner further strengthened his status as one of the most exciting and sought-after players by scoring a hat-trick during his side’s 5-0 thrashing of Mainz on the weekend.

Liverpool are reportedly leading the race to sign him this summer. Jurgen Klopp is understood to be his keen admirer. Werner too has added fuel to fire, having previously expressed his admiration for both the club and its manager.

But Liverpool are not the only ones in for him. Manchester United, Chelsea, and FC Barcelona are all in search of attack-minded players and are rumored to be chasing the 24-year old.

Amid the speculations, John Aldridge is convinced that Anfield is the right destination for the German marksman.

“Liverpool and Timo Werner are a marriage made in heaven,” the ex-Reds striker told the Liverpool Echo.

“From what I have seen of the striker, he would suit the Reds perfectly and offer a valuable option to Jurgen Klopp. He can play in every position across the front three and, in terms of his attributes, he has everything Liverpool would need. Especially his finishing.

“If Liverpool decide the deal is right, then I hope Werner is bought. I hope we don’t mess it up.”
