Liverpool urged to copy Sir Alex Ferguson Man Utd transfer tactics with Timo Werner deal

Liverpool have been told to get a deal over the line for Timo Werner this summer and copy the blueprint Sir Alex Ferguson did during his legendary career at Manchester United. The Reds have been linked with a swoop for the RB Leipzig striker.

Werner has been in blistering form this season, netting 25 goals and providing 10 assists in all competitions.

Liverpool are currently dominating the Premier League, 25 points ahead of their closest challengers Manchester City.

But Danny Mills believes Jurgen Klopp must look at what Fergie did at United and continue to strengthen in transfer windows.

He told Football Insider: “As we have seen with Manchester United in the past, Sir Alex Ferguson always brought in new good players to put pressure on those around.

“Werner can play anywhere in that front three.

“Firmino is integral to how they play at the moment and if he plays as the number nine they might tweak that. They might get better! He comes in, it stops players from getting complacent.

“If you have the option to add real quality to your first eleven and possibly put pressure on those that have done so well, it can only be a good thing, as it raises everybody’s game.”

RB Leipzig chief Oliver Mintzlaff commented on Werner’s future following the club’s 3-0 win over Werder Bremen on Saturday and insisted he was going nowhere.

“We hear these reports all the time,” he told Transfermarkt.
