Liverpool are facing major competition for a summer attacking target, while Tottenham could end their transfer drought by signing a prolific Danish winger, according to Tuesday’s European papers.

 

PSG LEADING RACE FOR LIVERPOOL STRIKE TARGET

Liverpool will face major competition from PSG if they are to sign RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner this summer.

Kicker claims that the Ligue 1 giants are now leading a four-way race to land the forward, with the Reds, Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid all eyeing Werner.

Anfield chief Jurgen Klopp has been chasing the 22-year-old since last summer, having followed his progress in Germany, although Leipzig still hope to convince the Germany international to sign a new deal.

Werner has been rumoured to have already agreed personal terms over a move to Bayern, although that has not stopped Klopp in his pursuit of the forward.

Klopp is looking for a new central striker to compete with Robert Firmino, with the Anfield futures of both Divock Origi and Daniel Sturridge unclear.

TOTTENHAM PLANNING SWOOP FOR COPENHAGEN STAR

Tottenham are reported to be at the front of the queue to sign in-form FC Copenhagen winger Robert Skov, according to the Danish media.

The 22-year-old has caught the eye of a number of Premier League suitors this season, scoring 24 times in 38 appearances for Copenhagen this season.

According to Ekstra Bladet, as per Sky Sports, Skov has been watched by Watford, Wolves and West Ham this season. But it is Tottenham who are at the front of the queue to sign the player and are said to be ready to make a firm offer for the €20m-rated star.

The former Denmark Under-21 international has a contract with Copenhagen until the summer of 2022 and is able to play on either wing, and can also operate in a more central position if required.

Tottenham have gone two transfer windows without signing a new player but could look to end their drought with the capture of Skov this summer.
