Liverpool boss Klopp responds to Werner: Nice knowing he wants to come here

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was coy today in response to Timo Werner's 'come and get me' plea this past fortnight.

The RB Leipzig striker has twice spoken openly about joining Liverpool in recent days.

Asked about the 23-year-old's comments, Klopp told Sky Sports: “It's like always, we have nothing to say about it really. But I prefer that when players speak about us they are positive rather than saying, 'That is the last club that I would ever go to!'.

“So from that point of view it's obviously nice but that's all, there is nothing else to say."

Werner, capped 29 times for Germany with 11 international goals, has netted 27 times in 33 games so far this season, including 21 in 23 Bundesliga outings.
