According to Italian football journalist Fabrizio Romano, the striker should have chosen to move to Liverpool rather than Chelsea. Timo Werner has once again been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge two years on from links to Liverpool. 

Werner has endured a difficult two seasons at Stamford Bridge since his £45m move from the Bundesliga in June 2020 and has been heavily linked with a move away from Thomas Tuchel's side in the final weeks of the transfer window. The 26-year-old also recently revealed that his 'happiness' was not exclusive to Chelsea as he looks to ensure he has sufficient playing time ahead of Germany's World Cup bid later this year in Qatar. "First of all, the most important thing is that I am happy," said Werner. 

"I am happy when I play and score goals. That's the fact. I could be happy everywhere. It is clear I want to play more, and I should play more to first be in good shape for the World Cup and, also, to have a chance to play at the World Cup.

“I think of course the manager always has different ideas, different thoughts and what you need in different games. I think in many games I was not in his thoughts so I try to change that.” And now Romano has admitted that it was a mistake for the forward to join Chelsea over a move to Anfield two years ago.

“In my opinion, Werner is a high-level player buAccording to Italian football journalist Fabrizio Romano, the striker should have chosen to move to Liverpool rather than Chelsea. “In my opinion, Werner is a high-level player but he needs a different style of play to shine: because of this, I feel a move to Liverpool instead could have helped him fulfil his potential,” the Italian wrote in his column for Caught Offside. “Unfortunately, Chelsea were quicker at the time, with Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp speaking to the player, but no direct talks between the Reds and RB Leipzig."

In the spring of 2020, just months before the coronavirus wreaked financial havoc on the world as we knew it, Liverpool's sporting director, Michael Edwards, was drawing up plans to improve Jurgen Klopp's squad. The then RB Leipzig, and Bundesliga sensation, had been a player strongly linked with a move to Anfield as his versatility and prowess in front of goal were highlighted as outstanding attributes that could provide suitable support to Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah.
