“Multiple sources in Germany have told me for months now that Klopp wants to bring Werner to Liverpool, which is no surprise,” former centre forward Fjortoft, who played in the Premier League with Swindon, Middlesbrough and Barnsley, told Empire of the Kop.
“Werner will cost only £50m. Sancho will at least be double that.
“SportBild confirmed my reports today and put it on their front page. They have a good record on these kind of stories.
“Klopp has followed Werner’s career and development for many years. He knows all the people around him.
“Klopp knows that Timo Werner is a perfect player in his system and to the demands of modern football.”
Asked if Werner would have trouble not being a guaranteed starter, Fjortoft added: “There are no free tickets in football anyway.
