Liverpool don’t need Werner…they have Rhiann Brewster

Sarah Winterburn

Transfer claims made by Bild about Liverpool spending £87m on RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner have been dismissed by the Liverpool Echo.

They unequivocally declare that ‘Liverpool have no interest’ in the German striker – who has scored seven international goals in 11 appearances – or indeed any other striker.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is happy to stick with Roberto Firmino as his striker, with Danny Ings, Dominic Solanke and Rhiann Brewster as back-up.

Klopp is keen to show faith in Brewster, who won the Under-17 World Cup with England and claimed the Golden Boot from the tournament.

Brewster is yet to feature for Liverpool, having suffered an injury in January that ended his season.
