Liverpool could reportedly make an attempt to sign RB Leipzig forward Timo Werner in January.

The 23-year-old was linked with a move away from Leipzig over the summer before ultimately signing a new deal with the German club, which will run until June 2023.

There remains widespread speculation surrounding the striker, though, with Liverpool and Manchester United both credited with an interest ahead of the January transfer window.

According to transfer expert Ian McGarry, who has been quoted in The Express, the Reds could sign the Germany international at the start of 2020 before loaning him back to Leipzig until the end of the season.

"Interestingly, one of the things we've also been told with regards to a potential deal," McGarry told Reach Plc's Transfer Window podcast.

"Werner was extremely disappointed that his move to Bayern Munich effectively broke down disappeared into the ether and he's been quite unhappy since. Well, Liverpool are trying to make that a bit better for both the player and his club.

"It has been suggested that Liverpool would buy the player in the January window and then he would be loaned back for the remainder of the Bundesliga season allowing RB Leipzig to get a good five months out of the player and to put the disappointment of the Bayern Munich transfer disintegrating behind him."

Werner has scored 10 times in 14 appearances for his German club this season.
