Liverpool football club and their fans might be on alert today with RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner discussing his desire “to play at a big club” publicly. Could Werner follow his teammate Naby Keita in a move to Anfield next summer? They would certainly have great chemistry together, and it’s a scenario that would get many Liverpool supporters very excited.

Timo Werner would be the perfect type of finisher to complement the Reds many attacking midfielders who can consistently create chances in the final third. This is the type of transaction that LFC Manager Jurgen Klopp should really be pursuing for next summer transfer window.

“In Spain, there are a maximum of three clubs — Barcelona, Real and Atletico Madrid,” Werner said in an interview with Bild.

“In England there’s more: Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham, Liverpool, Manchester United and Manchester City. Bayern is also a big club. But for me it is not a topic that I am concerned with. Of course I want to play at a big club. But we have not yet come to terms with the development at Leipzig. Perhaps RB will be a big club too.”

Kudos to Timo Werner for reciting the entire European, and hence global football hierarchy right there, telling it like it is, instead of usual athlete press conferences cliches. He didn’t just mention Liverpool, he listed the rest of the Premier League big six, as well as Germany’s contribution to the elite of the elite club.

We also need to give him props for including Atletico Madrid in the La Liga entries, instead of just mentioning the usual duopoly. Sorry Paris Saint-Germain, obviously your aspirations are to be in this cadre at the top of the food chain, but Timo Werner doesn’t believe that you’ve arrived at “big club” status yet.
