Sky Sports reporter confirms ex-Liverpool target ‘will leave’ Chelsea: ‘Tuchel is not the biggest fan’

Posted by

Liverpool are hardly in the market for a new forward this summer after bolstering the department with potentially record-breaking signing Darwin Nunez.

It’s unlikely fans will see that position change, even with former target Timo Werner likely to be on the market in the current window, according to a tweet from Sky Sports reporter Florian Plettenberg.

The German international has had a far from perfect time in the English capital after Chelsea beat out the Merseysiders to the ex-RB Leipzig star’s signature back in 2020.

Predominantly favouring the centre-forward spot, we already possess the necessary depth required in the form of Diogo Jota, Bobby Firmino and new boy Nunez.

That’s not to rule out the possibility that Liverpool’s recruitment team won’t have considered what the Blues striker could have achieved under the tutelage of Jurgen Klopp, though it would seem senseless to pursue yet another striker when the midfield is the more pressing concern.

There’s a quality player in Werner that perhaps has yet to be fully unlocked by Thomas Tuchel, though we’ll wish him all the best in whatever move he pursues this summer.
