Liverpool suddenly withdrew from the hunt for Timo Werner. In fact, previously the Reds were referred to as the team most likely to get the service of a young German star.
Timo Werner has become one of the players who has been intensely linked to Liverpool lately. Even according to information that was heard by coach Jurgen Klopp to jump right in to approach the 24-year-old striker.
European media also believe that Werner will move closer to Anfield, because the two parties have been giving flattery to each other for the past few months. Not surprisingly, many were surprised when they heard that Werner had joined Chelsea.
Yes, the Blues have reached an agreement with RB Leipzig and paid the player’s tag worth 60 million Euros. This transfer then raises a question mark, what is the reason Liverpool suddenly withdrew from the hunt for Timo Werner.
Gerard Brand who worked as an analysis for Sky Sports also claimed to be confused and tried to guess the reasons behind the decision.
“I don’t think this is a simple matter. It could be that this decision would haunt them later, but there are some things we need to consider before guessing why Liverpool are not trying to bring him, “Brand opens.
The media began to speculate that the decision was actually based on the fact that the tag of RB Leipzig paired was still too high. But that doesn’t seem to be the case, Gerrard Brand has a different opinion.
He felt that Jurgen Klopp’s troops currently had a strong line of attack in Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino. No need to be strengthened, so recruiting newer attackers just to coat one of them.
This is where the main problem, Timo Werner is reluctant to become the second option at Liverpool.
“Here’s the problem: how can you bring in a world-class striker when the player knows he has to be Salah, Firmino or Mane? They are all still 28 years old and are at the peak of their performance,”
“Klopp has to shift one of them so Werner gets minutes to play. That is clearly difficult, because Klopp must be careful not to damage the balance of the attacking trio by bringing in other attackers, “he said.
