The Daily Express quoted ‘transfer expert’ Duncan Castles, who says Liverpool are still in the market for a forward player this summer.

Liverpool were chasing Germany international Werner until Easter time with Jurgen Klopp personally speaking to the RB Leipzig striker. However, the Reds soon withdrew from the running for the forward when the Bundesliga club refused to budge on his release clause.

Werner has since been confirmed as one of Frank Lampard’s new signings at Chelsea for next season, with the Blues not flinching at his £47.5million buyout clause.

Castles though thinks Klopp still wants to strengthen his attacking line, which missed Mo Salah so much at Goodison on Sunday night.

“The information I have is that Liverpool still remain keen on the recruitment of a forward of Timo Werner’s type,” Castles said on the Transfer Window podcast.

“They want a successor to Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah should either or both of them decide to fulfil their ambition to go and play in La Liga.

“Both of them are 28 very soon, so you’re getting to that period where should a big offer for one or both of those players come in, they’ll let them go.”
