Liverpool need to make sacrifices to land Timo Werner, club legend - Molby says

Liverpool legend Jan Molby has hinted that the runaway league-leaders will need to make sacrifices to land RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner this summer.

Molby, who won three league titles and two FA Cups at Anfield, says he can see the German international signing for Liverpool this season.

Speaking on YouTube, the former Reds player said: “Yes I do [think Werner will come]. I don't think there's going to be an awful lot of transfers happening this forthcoming summer, but I think that in many ways suits Liverpool.

“They've got a very strong squad at the moment. There will be one or two players leave, but we've got some young players that need to be introduced into the squad.

“So if Liverpool cannot spend any money I don't think it will be a big problem.

“Timo Werner eventually I think will come. I think his preferred choice is Liverpool.

“Also when I look at him, he is a top, top player, but I couldn't see him playing for Barcelona because they play in a different way, they play possession-based football. That is not his game. His game is exactly what we are all about."
