Aldridge claims Liverpool and Werner 'marriage made in heaven'

Liverpool and RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner are a 'marriage made in heaven', according to Reds legend John Aldridge.

The Reds continue to be linked with the German forward, who has a release clause of £52m.

Aldridge wrote in the Liverpool Echo: "Liverpool and Timo Werner are a marriage made in heaven. From what I have seen of the striker, he would suit the Reds perfectly and offer a valuable option to Jurgen Klopp."

"He can play in every position across the front three and, in terms of his attributes, he has everything Liverpool would need. Especially his finishing.

"It's obvious Werner wants to come to Anfield. He's talked it up enough times. And he's right to say the way Liverpool play suits him. He would be better served moving to the Reds rather than going somewhere else such as Chelsea."
