Boss Jurgen Klopp is desperate to sign the hitman and plans to bring in £52m by selling Roma-target Xherdan Shaqiri, Harry Wilson and Marko Grujic.

German newspaper Bild’s Head of Football Christian Falk believes Werner’s switch to Liverpool will happen this summer.

He told lfctransferroom: “According to our information, the clause is 55 million as a base value and can grow to 60 million if RB Leipzig makes it into the Champions League.

“And yes, I think this transfer is happening. Interestingly, Werner now has a new Social Media and Marketing agency.

“The boss of this agency is also Jurgen Klopp’s manager.

“Werner is also talking a lot about Liverpool in the public eye now, too.”

Klopp wants the 28-goal striker to boost his amazing frontline of Mo Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane.

Werner has steered Leipzig into the last eight of the Champions League.

He has already snubbed a summer switch to Bayern Munich.

There are clauses in his contract which means his value decreases dramatically over the next year or two.

It will reportedly drop to £22m in 2022.
