Liverpool have also been linked with another Chelsea transfer target Jadon Sancho but The Mirror claim Liverpool are more confident of signing Werner than Sancho this summer.

It is believed Liverpool are preparing to trigger Werner’s £50million release clause which is due to expire at the end of April.

Meanwhile, Werner recently responded to Liverpool’s interest in signing him.

Werner said: “Jurgen Klopp is the best coach in the world.

“There is a lot to suggest that my style of play would suit there (Liverpool).

“But I don’t think about that at the moment because we have so much to do with Leipzig. I won’t rule out anything. We have the Euros in the summer, I want to focus on that tournament.

“Everything else I will think about after the season.”
