Liverpool are being backed by Jan Molby to add Timo Werner to their ranks in the next transfer window, but the Reds legend can also see “one or two players” moving on.
Any departures from Anfield will free up space for Jurgen Klopp to bolster his squad.
Recent successes mean that the Premier League leaders have funds to spend, but big-money deals are expected to be in short supply due to the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic.
It may be that Liverpool decide to invest part of that budget in another forward, with greater depth considered to be required in that area.
Werner would be a logical choice, given the RB Leipzig striker’s prolific record in Germany and apparent suitability to Klopp’s system.
Molby can see the Reds making an approach, with exits for those running down their contracts or deemed surplus to requirements set to make it easier for additions to be sought.
The former Liverpool midfielder told Hotel Tia: “Yes I do [think Werner will come].
“I don’t think there’s going to be an awful lot of transfers happening this forthcoming summer, but I think that in many ways suits Liverpool.
“They’ve got a very strong squad at the moment. There will be one or two players leaving, but we’ve got some young players that need to be introduced into the squad.
“So if Liverpool cannot spend any money I don’t think it will be a big problem.
“Timo Werner eventually I think will come. I think his preferred choice is Liverpool.
“Also when I look at him, he is a top, top player, but I couldn’t see him playing for Barcelona because they play in a different way, they play possession-based football. That is not his game. His game is exactly what we are all about.”
