Rio Ferdinand has suggested that Timo Werner would be a great signing for the Reds on his Instagram channel. Germany international has scored frequently for RB Leipzig this term and has been heavily linked with the Merseyside club as a result.
There are some doubts over whether the £50m move will happen, due to the impact of coronavirus now. But Rio suggests that if he thinks Reds should be pushing the boat out to add Timo, as he looks a much better option than Divock Origi.
Former England international said: “If Liverpool say they aren’t going to buy him I’m sure there are going to be others willing to buy him. I saw him destroy Spurs in the Champions League and I thought ‘wow’.
“I like the way he moves, he’s not pinned down to one position. He is elusive in his movement. He’s not in one position all the time and he’s very direct. “If I’m Liverpool I 100% take him because they haven’t got that back-up for the front three.
“As well as Origi has done I’d want more than that, and if I was him I’m thinking I don’t think Salah is going to stay here that much longer, Mane might get bought out as well.”
