Prospective Champions Liverpool Target M’bappe or Werner

Liverpool are on the verge of winning the 2019-20 English Premier League, and while that victory still remains in doubt due to the extended league break due to COVID-19, the Reds are already looking to strengthen their squad in the upcoming transfer window.

The side have reportedly been linked to moves for RB Leipzig’s Timo Werner, or even more radically, Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian M’bappe.

According to this report from The Guardian, Liverpool are currently weighing up a £52.7m move for the German forward, who scored 21 goals from 25 Bundesliga appearances for Leipzig during the current campaign.

Meanwhile, their potential move for M’bappe seems to have hit a snag, as the Ligue 1 champions have offered the French international a £600,000-per-week salary, to match their highest earner Neymar and dissuade him from moving to Anfield.

A move for the German striker seems more likely given the circumstances, but it remains to be seen how things will progress and when the league finally restarts.
