‘Big Mistake’ ‘Absolute Nonsense’ Sell To Buy FC’ Reaction As James Pearce Reveals How Klopp Responded To Werner Transfer Failure

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is frustrated with the club’s failure to land RB Leipzig’s Timo Werner but there is no friction with the owners over losing out on the player, according to James Pearce.

The Athletic‘s Liverpool correspondent has revealed that the financial impact of the global health crisis meant a deal wasn’t possible and that Klopp understood the reasoning.

Supporters on Twitter are not quite as understanding about the Werner situation:

Spending £53m on a player who would not have been guaranteed a first-team place meant that FSG were always going to hesitate on the deal.

With Chelsea having money in the bank, following the transfer ban, as well being prepared to hand Werner regular first-team football, there are also a lot of other factors as to why the German decided on a move to Stamford Bridge.

Whether Liverpool will opt to pursue an alternative target when the transfer window opens, we shall have to wait and see.
