As you may know, Liverpool desperately want to buy Timo Werner. However, Werner’s transfer may fail. The Merseysiders are also considering the option of Ousmane Dembele.
Liverpool’s main target during the summer transfer window will be Timo Werner. Negotiations have started long ago. So, the German player is very close to moving to England.
It was recently reported that the English giants offered Werner a five-year contract and 10 million euros a year.
However, according to the latest information, the transfer may be canceled. If we believe the rumors spread in the foreign press, the problem is the ransom of the 24-year-old player. The reason for this is that the German club is not ready to consider the player’s transfer fee less than 55 million euros. This cost seems too much for the Merseysiders.
It is noteworthy that “Bayern,” “Chelsea,” and “Manchester United” are also interested in attracting the German forward. The player’s contract with “Leipzig” is valid until June 30, 2023.
Another option – Ousmane Dembele
According to Mundo Deportivo, if Liverpool fail to add Timo Werner this summer, then the English will try to bring in Barcelona player Ousmane Dembele.
Dembele moved to Barcelona in 2017 from Borussia Dortmund. In Spain, he failed to show his potential. The reason for this was mainly injuries. But Dembele was also undisciplined.
If Jurgen Klopp decides to buy the Frenchman, Ousmane’s physical data will be his main task. Dembele’s contract with Barcelona runs until the summer of 2022. The 23-year-old has made a total of five appearances in La Liga’s 2019/20 season, scoring just one goal.
