One Key Factor Could See Bundesliga Star Join Chelsea over Premier League Rivals
The strong squad Jurgen Klopp has at Liverpool could see RB Leipzig’s Timo Werner move elsewhere this summer, according to former Chelsea midfielder Craig Burley.
Chelsea and Liverpool are the major contenders for the German striker signature this summer. The 24-year old has had an outstanding season so far for RB Leipzig scoring 31 goals in all competitions for the Bundesliga side.
Former Chelsea player believes Werner will be a good addition for the Blues have really lack cutting edge in the attacking setup and describe him as a player “who ticks every box for them”
“You want to back yourself as a player,” Burley told ESPN.
“You’ve got a manager in Klopp who will be very enthusiastic in trying to sell the platform to him.
“The game has changed, you’ve got to have a deep squad and a quality squad.
“I think Klopp can sell to Timo Werner that Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah have carried the load for Liverpool, and they’re not going to play 50 or 60 games per year.
“I’m not surprised Chelsea would be interested, though, he ticks every box for them.
“He can play out wide, they’ve got wide players, he can play through the middle, he works hard, he presses when he’s not got the ball, it absolutely makes sense for him.”
