Graeme Souness has admitted to the Irish Examiner that he finds it ‘strange’ that Liverpool have opted against signing Timo Werner.
Werner was heavily linked with a move to Liverpool for months, but the Reds failed to pull the trigger, and they have now been made to pay.
Chelsea are set to sign Werner ahead of Jurgen Klopp’s side, according to the Guardian.
And Souness finds it difficult to understand why Liverpool didn’t spend the money to bring Werner in.
“It would appear they followed him for a long time. You would think that deal had been done. For Liverpool to pull out, I find it strange,” Souness admited.
“Because they are in a good place financially. The little I’ve seen of him, he’s looked fabulous.”
There are now fears around Liverpool that they could be about to have another quiet summer.
Liverpool haven’t made a marquee signing for almost two years now, and despite their success there are some concerns that they could be punished for being static in the transfer window.
Liverpool’s squad have been together for a long time now, and it has been widely felt that Klopp’s side may need freshening up slightly in the summer.
Werner has scored 25 goals in 31 Bundesliga games this term and looks like he could be an extremely exciting addition to Chelsea’s squad
