    That's according Football operations and communications consultant Ian McGarry who revealed the news on the latest episode of the Transfer Window Podcast.

    Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is said to be a keen admirer of Werner and now appears on the brink of landing him this summer.

    Werner was recently confirmed by RB Leipzig chief to have refused a contract extension that would see him remain at the Bundesliga club, opening the door to a Anfield switch this summer transfer window.

    Speaking at the Transfer Window Podcast McGarry said: "This (Werner) is a guy who since he signed from Stuttgart in 2016 has scored 60 goals in only 108 appearances - so he’s got a very good goals-to-games ratio.

    "(He's a) 23-year-old German international, has been interesting Liverpool for a long time.

    "As we all know on the Transfer Window Podcast, and our educated listeners know this as well, when a player refuses to sign a new contract it’s usually because he’s got an agreement in place somewhere else.

    "My information is Liverpool are very close to agreeing personal terms with Werner.

    "Obviously they have been lacking a natural No 9 out-and-out striker for some time.

    "Divock Origi hasn’t made any impression, Daniel Sturridge has obviously had his injury problems and has failed to make an impression when he’s come on this season.

    "Adding a proper No.9 to their already very potent attacking force is something Jurgen Klopp has been very, very keen to do.

    "Whether they win the title or not I think that’s something they will press ahead and recruit anyway."

    Ian McGarry also added the deal would sum up to £50million with the player still having a year left on his contract.
