Former Liverpool striker John Aldridge has tipped the club to make "two big, big signings" this summer, and believes that one of them should be RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner.
Werner has been repeatedly linked with a switch to Anfield following another prolific campaign which has seen him score 27 goals and register 12 assists in 36 appearances across all competitions.
The Reds have reportedly put their transfer plans on hold for the time being due to the coronavirus pandemic, but Aldridge believes that fans can expect some high-profile arrivals at Anfield nonetheless.
"I think Liverpool fans can look forward to one or two big names in the transfer window this summer. Jurgen Klopp, like he always has done, has to look for players who are as good or better than he has. No squad padding this summer," Aldridge told the Liverpool ECHO.
"Up front is probably the big area. At the moment, behind that three of Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah, there is only Divock Origi and Takumi Minamino who are playing regularly. Liverpool will need another but that one player has to be absolute top drawer. For me, there is only one who fits the bill perfectly. That player is Timo Werner. All day long for me.
"Whenever I have seen him, he looks like the one for the Reds. For the prices you hear quoted for players, the likes of Kylian Mbappe and Jadon Sancho, in this climate, Werner seems the ideal option. Where else is Klopp going to strengthen?
"I would suggest another left-back that can push Andy Robertson and a top centre-forward. Will he go out and get a world-class attacker? We will wait and see but Liverpool have designs to win the lot now. If you are looking ahead to this summer then I think the fans would want two big, big signings to arrive."
Liverpool's last high-profile signing saw Alisson Becker join the club in July 2018.
