Liverpool are willing to let Daniel Sturridge and Divock Origi leave the club in January to make space for the signing of Timo Werner, according to reports.
Werner, the RB Leipzig and Germany forward, was linked with a move to Anfield last week, as Liverpool have sent scouts to watch him on the orders of Jurgen Klopp.
An £88million price tag has been mooted, and Liverpool are already planning how they can fit the 22-year-old in their squad.
And, according to Sports Illustrated, space will be made for Werner by the departures of Sturridge and Origi – two forwards who have been awarded little playing time this season.
Origi, the Belgium international, has less than 180 minutes of football to his name in 2018/19, but he did remind Klopp of his talents earlier this month by scoring the latest of winning goals in the Merseyside derby.
Sturridge has fared slightly better, with almost 500 minutes of professional football played this term, but only two of his Premier League appearances have been from the start and the England man is clearly regarded as dispensable by Klopp.
