In news that will be gutting for many Reds who had their hearts set on Timo Werner, it looks as though the German is going to sign for Chelsea and not Liverpool.
The news broke this evening in the Telegraph, after Chelsea agreed to pay Rb Leipzig’s £53m price-tag that was inserted into the player’s contract.

We already know that Klopp has spoken with Werner and convinced him of our project, but clearly Liverpool were not ready to spend the money while Roman Abramovich in west London was.

Big shoutout to Dave Maddock of the Mirror, who called this a few weeks back and was ridiculed by many as a result.
