Contact Made: Liverpool enquire about signing 'extraordinary' €20m star who dreams of 'Anfield'

Speculation over RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner continues to intensify, and new reports suggest that Liverpool have stepped up their interest in the prolific German striker.

Earlier this month, Daily Mail claimed:

"Liverpool have checked on RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner".

Soon after, Werner told Sportbild:

"To play at Anfield and hear fans sing 'You'll Never Walk Alone ' would be something special."

Now, the Daily Mail claims:

"Liverpool have enquired about Timo Werner, but the German club is reluctant to sell".

Some info about €20m-rated Werner:

* 21-year old striker, who can also play on either wing. Contract expires: 2020

* Stuttgart: 25 goals/assists in 103 apps (One every 230 mins)

* Leipzig: 21 goals/assists in 24 apps (One every 87 mins)

* Aug 2013: Became Stuttgart's youngest ever player. Also the youngest player in Bundesliga history to reach the 100 game milestone.

* Feb 2017: Leipzig boss Ralph Hasenhüttl claimed: "Timo is currently the best German striker, and he has qualities that are extraordinary".

With 20 goals/assist in 25 apps (one every 95 minutes) Werner is on fire for Leipzig this season, but he's only 21, and it's risky signing a young player on the basis of one good season.

That said, Werner is closing in on 130 Bundesliga appearances, so he has credible experience behind him. A viable target?
