Speaking earlier this year, Werner sparked speculation by hinting that he would consider a move, saying: "What do you say if a club comes knocking in the next two weeks, a club which is one of the favourites to win the Champions League and makes an incredible offer?"

Inter are one of a handful of clubs keen on signing RB Leipzig superstar Timo Werner according to a report in today's print edition of German newspaper BILD.

Update @TimoWerner & @LFC: The release clause of Werner at @DieRotenBullen has to be activated from Liverpool til the end of April to buy him for the transfer fee of 55 til 60 Million Euros.

Werner is likely to have other interested parties but Bild have claimed that a switch to the Premier League is his preferred choice of destination.

Werner has 86 goals in 143 appearances for Leipzig, including 25 goals and 10 assists in 30 appearances in all competitions this season.

But the clause is only applicable until the end of April and therefore, his suitors have a short window during which they can trigger the clause for the RB Leipzig striker.

That would appear to be part of the clause, and would enable the Bundesliga side to have plenty of time to find a replacement.

According to the same story, the Germany worldwide has a contract release clause that stands at £51m, which would represent a significant investment for Liverpool FC.

Liverpool might be forced into changing their style ever so slightly if they do land Werner.

Klopp sees the striker as an ideal way to further strengthen his already dominating attacking trio of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane.
