Liverpool are set to go head to head with rivals Chelsea for the signature of Bundesliga star Timo Werner according to reports.
The RB Leipzig hotshot has averaged a goal a game (25 in 26) across all competitions this season and has undoubtedly alerted a number of big teams across Europe.
The Mirror reports that Chelsea are in the market for a striker and are free to enter the market after their transfer ban was overturned.
Werner is at the top of their list and are believed to already opened negotiations with the German international who has signalled his intent of testing himself in the Premier League.
The Striker recently told Bild:
"The Premier League is certainly the most interesting league, you have to say.
"There is a certain flair to watching the English league and playing there."
The interest from Chelsea has prompted Liverpool to make their move with Jürgen Klopp a known fan of the 23 year-old.
With Leipzig flying high at the top of the Bundesliga and in the last 16 of the Champions League, it seems highly unlikely that Werner will leave in the current window.
One other player that seems to be staying put at his current club is Xherdan Shaqiri with Klopp adamant in not wanting any first team members leaving during this month.
Roma are believed to be very keen on the Swiss international who has struggled for consistent minutes at the Reds during the past 12 months due to increased competition and a series of niggling injuries.
