Liverpool not yet held talks with RB Leipzig striker Werner

Liverpool have NOT withdrawn from talks with RB Leipzig star Timo Werner.

Reports in England on Wednesday claimed the Reds had pulled out of talks with sign the German striker.

But the Liverpool Echo says the club have not yet spoken with Werner or Leipzig.

That doesn't mean the deal is off however, as Jurgen Klopp is still an admirer of the 24-year-old.

The feeling has been reciprocated, with Werner professing his respect for Klopp and the side he has built at Anfield.

It remains to be seen if a deal will be completed this summer due to coronavirus pandemic's impact on club finances.
