Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is ready to make two signings this summer, however, the Reds’ transfer plans are currently on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic. Liverpool have been heavily linked with RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner ahead of the summer transfer window.
The Germany international has talked up a move to Anfield, with Werner a big fan of his countryman Klopp.
And according to The Athletic, Liverpool are keen to bring in an attacker this summer and they’re eyeing Werner.
They add that Klopp is also looking to land a left-back to provide cover for Andy Robertson.
However, it’s claimed Liverpool’s plans are on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The Athletic reckon the Reds won’t firm up their interest in anyone until it’s clear when football will return.
Premier League action has been suspended due to coronavirus and there’s no scheduled return date.
A lot has been made of Liverpool’s transfer plans, with Anfield hero John Aldridge backing Klopp to sign Werner and one other player.
He said: “I think Liverpool fans can look forward to one or two big names in the transfer window this summer.
“Jurgen Klopp, like he always has done, has to look for players who are as good or better than he has. No squad padding this summer.
“Up front is probably the big area. At the moment, behind that three of Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah, there is only Divock Origi and Takumi Minamino who are playing regularly.

“Liverpool will need another but that one player has to be absolute top drawer. For me, there is only one who fits the bill perfectly.
“That player is Timo Werner. All day long for me.
“Whenever I have seen him, he looks like the one for the Reds.
“For the prices you hear quoted for players, the likes of Kylian Mbappe and Jadon Sancho, in this climate, Werner seems the ideal option.
“Where else is Klopp going to strengthen? He has Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in the attacking midfield area, so the squad is very settled at the minute.
“I would suggest another left-back that can push Andy Robertson and a top centre-forward.
“Will he go out and get a world-class attacker? We will wait and see but Liverpool have designs to win the lot now.”
