‘Just Hope Klopp Isn’t Rattled By This’ ‘Embarrassing Owners’ Fans Angered By Revelation About Why Liverpool Failed In Werner Bid

Liverpool were unable to sign RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner due to financial constraints, according to multiple reports in the English media.

It is claimed that the Reds’ owners FSG were not willing to trigger the German’s £53m release clause due to the economic downturn caused by the global health crisis, as well as prioritising new contracts for Alisson and Virgil van Dijk.

Chelsea then swooped in to complete a deal for Werner, and fans on Twitter are frustrated with the way the club have handled things:

Supporters are right to be angry if FSG have prevented manager Jurgen Klopp from getting one of his key targets, but things have to be put in perspective.

Werner would not have been an automatic first choice next season even if he was signed, and you can appreciate why a £53m bid for someone who was not a guaranteed starter may have been ruled out.
