Former Premier League striker Jan Aage Fjortoft believes Timo Werner is perfect for Liverpool and the club should simply pay up for Europe’s best striker.

Timo Werner to Liverpool is considered by many the perfect match.

The only question being is he good enough to force his way into a side with Sadio mane, Mohamed Salah ad Roberto Firmino in its front line?

Some have suggested that the 24-year-old either stays where he is a little longer or goes to Jurgen Klopp’s side and is simply patient.

However, retried Norwegian international Jan Aage Fjortoft insists that the young German international is more than good enough and the Merseysiders must get the deal done.

Speaking to Sky Sports, he believes that they don’t get much better than Timo Werner.

He said:

“He is good enough for Liverpool, and as with any team, when the best talent in Europe is available, they have to go for him.”

“If you see Timo Werner this year, with Julien Nagelsmann, this big prospect of managers, he has turned him into a more complete player.”

“He is now going deeper, a more complete player.”

“Timo Werner said if he will leave RB Leipzig, it will be abroad.”

“There is no chance you will get a cut-price for Timo Werner, but let’s be honest, if Liverpool wants a player, they will get that player!”

Werner is said to be one of Klopp’s top summer transfer targets. Although recent speculation has suggested that Liverpool are not willing to meet RB Leipzig’s asking price.
