And Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Havertz – another increasing global star of interest to the Reds – is a target for Bayern Munich, with reports in Germany recommending that will be his next location.
Klopp validated his appreciation for both of his compatriots, however described that unpredictability triggered by the coronavirus pandemic complicated any hopes Liverpool had of signing them.
“There are a lot of good players on this planet,” Klopp informed Sky Germany “Timo Werner is a terrific gamer, Kai Havertz is a terrific gamer.
“Right time, chance – whatever needs to come together. Six, 7 weeks earlier, we didn’t understand if we might play once again this year. If we had not played the 2nd half of the season, we would have believed, ‘OK, when can you actually play football once again?’ And now it begins right now.
“We act as if everything is already settled. It’s not settled. We use this little loophole we’ve been left to play football again. Everything else we have to see the moment it happens. We can’t pretend now that everything’s going to be fine in the future.”
‘Timo Werner remains in the driving seat’
RB Leipzig handling director Oliver Mintzlaff says Werner’s release stipulation has actually not yet been set off, however firmly insists the forward is “in the driving seat” for a possible relocation.
Chelsea are comprehended to have actually concurred a handle concept to sign Werner for EUR55 m (₤494), with the 24- year-old set to make ₤200,00 0-a-week at Stamford Bridge.
Werner played the complete 90 minutes on Saturday in a 1-1 draw with bottom side Paderborn, which kept Leipzig inhabiting the 3rd of 4 Bundesliga Champions League certification locations.
“We’re concentrating on the final games in the league. We want to qualify for the Champions League. That’s the only thing we are discussing with Timo right now,” Mintzlaff informed Sky Germany
“It was essential for us to extend the agreement with him. We did that last summertime, due to the fact that it is essential for our young club that no gamer leaves free of charge.
“Of course there is this exit stipulation, which we put in the agreement to offer him the chance to take the next action. Now Timo Werner remains in the motorist’s seat, not us. Until now, neither Werner has actually pulled the stipulation, nor has any club sent us a transfer agreement.”
Asked particularly about a transfer to Chelsea, Mintzlaff reacted: “No, we have not had an exchange with Chelsea yet. So we have absolutely nothing to report. Timo Werner is a gamer of RBLeipzig He has actually indicated a couple of weeks ago that he is dealing with a transfer. But up until now, there’s no closed offer yet.
“If Timo Werner would change, then we are sure that we can find a solution with the new club, that he can play the Bundesliga season with us to the end, whenever that is. With the Champions League, we can’t discuss it until we know when the Champions League will take place. That won’t be decided until mid-June.”
Financial warn the truth – Klopp
Klopp appeared to recommend that Liverpool are reluctant to set out significant transfer costs in the present financial environment, and that it would be inconsistent to do so while possibly needing to ask gamers to take decreased incomes.
“There are all sorts of rumours in England about who Manchester United are going to pick, Chelsea are going to pick,” he stated.
“It’s rather peaceful here (at Liverpool) at the minute, I believe it’s safe to state. If you wish to take it seriously and run a typical service and depend upon earnings and have no concept just how much you will make … particularly due to the fact that we do not understand when we can begin having fun with viewers once again.
“At the minute, all clubs are losing cash. Without viewers, we need to repay the season tickets and most likely offer none next year. At least possibly without the very first 10 or 15 video games. The VIP locations will not be loaded and the tickets will not be offered. This will have an influence on other partners and things will look a bit various.
“Discussing with the players about things like salary waivers and on the other hand buying a player for £50-60m, we have to explain.”
