Jamie Carragher declares that Liverpool would have signed Timo Werner had it not been for the timing of the coronavirus pandemic, after the striker accepted sign up with Chelsea.
Former Liverpool star Jamie Carragher has actually declared that the Reds would have signed Timo Werner had it not been for the timing of the coronavirus pandemic.
The RB Leipzig striker has actually just recently accepted sign up with Chelsea in a ₤52 m offer, after the Merseyside club withdrew their interest in the 24- year-old.
Nevertheless, Carragher thinks that Liverpool took out of the offer due to issues over financial resources as a result of COVID-19
“I honestly believe that if the pandemic hadn’t happened then Timo Werner would have been a Liverpool player. I am absolutely convinced of that,” Carragher informed Sky Sports News.
” If Timo Werner had signed for Liverpool, he would not have been first option since the front 3 is what it is. Due to the fact that he can play out broad or through the middle, he would have brought an adaptability I think Liverpool are doing not have.
“[Divock] Origi is a Liverpool legend since of the crucial goals he has actually scored, however I have constantly feared that if among Liverpool’s front 3 had a severe injury it might actually harm them. I have constantly believed Liverpool required higher quality as back- up than Divock.
“Werner looked perfect. He’s German, he plays for a team with a similar philosophy to Liverpool, and he’s got great speed. But spending £50m on someone who wouldn’t be a first choice is a big decision.”
Werner has actually handled 31 goals for RB Leipzig this campaign.
