Klopp Faces Competition to Sign Werner If Martinez Is Lost to Barcelona


At the moment, Barcelona is devoting all its energy to trying to sign Inter’s Lautaro Martinez, at least according to rumours in papers like Sport.

However, especially given the financial squeeze that the coronavirus crisis puts on clubs, it won’t be easy. Mundo Deportivo says he’s not the only player on their list.

Indeed, if Martinez proves too expensive or Inter too reluctant to sell this summer, RB Leipzig’s Timo Werner is named as their “option B”.

However, one major obstacle to this pursuit is likely to exist, and that is Liverpool.

Jurgen Klopp is said to be Werner big fan and it is easy to assume that the German striker might be wanted at Anfield. Klopp’s team also looks like a much more tempting destination in its current incarnation for a player looking to take their game to the next level.

Barcelona, of course, may shade the Reds as the bigger team, but not by much.
