Klopp furious: Liverpool taking big risk as Werner transfer saga causing tension at Anfield

The Reds don’t exactly look in desperate need of a new signing up front given the quality of the players they currently have in attack, but it seems Klopp is desperate to land Werner, according to Don Balon.

And it seems the club’s reluctance to pay up for the Germany international is leading to major tension behind the scenes at Anfield, with Don Balon even suggesting it could put the manager’s future in doubt.

It will be intriguing to see how this saga continues to play out, but Liverpool will surely want to do all they can to back Klopp in the transfer market after the miraculous work he’s done in his time on Merseyside.

Timo Werner is reportedly a transfer priority for Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp

The German tactician won the Champions League with LFC last season and now has the club on the brink of their first league title in 30 years.

Werner might not seem the most pressing addition, but if Klopp wants him Liverpool should not risk this potentially big row with their manager, who is surely their most important asset of all right now.
