Timo Werner’s recent comments about a summer transfer to Liverpool are no “coincidence”, according to former Premier League striker Jan Age Fjortoft.
The Germany striker has spoken openly this week about a switch to Merseyside as he continues to be linked with a move away from RB Leipzig.
And ex-player turned journalist Fjortoft thinks that Werner is trying to tempt Jurgen Klopp to snap him up at the end of the season.
“His interviews this week are not a coincidence. He wants to send a message to Liverpool,” Fjortoft wrote on Twitter.
“Werner knows that Klopp rates him. Werner knows that his playing-style is perfect for Liverpool. Werner knows that Klopp is a perfect coach for him.
