#Liverpool are looking to bolster their attacking options this summer, with Germany international Timo Werner thought to be top of Jurgen Klopp's wish-list.

The RassenBallsport Leipzig (RB Leipzig) player has been setting the Bundesliga alight this season and his goalscoring exploits have not gone unnoticed by a host of Premier League admirers.

The 22-year-old has scored 38 goals in 67 appearances for Leipzig since his transfer from Stuttgart in 2016 and has scored 10 goals in 21 games this campaign. Such performances over the last few seasons have also made Werner an established regular in the German national side for the last 18 months.

Liverpool already have a club record deal, thought to be worth over £48m, to sign Werner's team-mate Naby Keita from Leipzig in the summer but they are now also thought to be leading the race for the striker's signature.

Werner was the Bundesliga's fourth highest goalscorer with 21 goals last campaign behind only Anthony Modeste, Pierre Emerick Aubameyang and Robert Lewandowski.

Jurgen Klopp is known to be a fan of the young German, although has a long list of potential suitors. The likes of Atletico Madrid, Real Madrid, Barcelona, Chelsea, Tottenham, Arsenal, Manchester United and Manchester City have all been mentioned by the striker as clubs interested in signing him

Last month Werner was reported to have rejected a new contract at Leipzig and with his team-mate Keita already on the way to Merseyside, Werner could be persuaded to follow, making The Reds one of the favourites for his signature.

Liverpool a team to be feared in the Champions League

If Werner does decide to join Liverpool this summer he will certainly be joining a team with plenty of attacking prowess, with Jurgen Klopp's side looking menacing going forward this season.

Liverpool are still the only team to have beaten Manchester City in the league this season and at times have looked unplayable, with their creative players; Mane, Salah, and Firmino especially, tearing apart a number of #Premier League defenses this season.

However, the Merseyside club have arguably looked even better in the Champions League this season, having already racked up a staggering 28 goals in eight games so far, while only conceding six times.

That average of 3.5 goals a game will have teams wanting to avoid Liverpool in the #Quarter Finals, with some even tipping Jurgen Klopp's side to go all the way in the competition this season.
