Jamie Redknapp has claimed Timo Werner must make Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp regret missing out on his signature when he finalises his move Chelsea
We have seemingly won the race to sign the brilliantly gifted German in the summer window after news broke that they have agreed a five-year deal worth around £175,000-a-week to bring him to the Premier League, despite the fact Liverpool wanted him
And reacting to the rumours, ex-Liverpool midfielder Redknapp told football.london: ‘It’s a great signing.
‘They have got [Hakim] Ziyech as well and he looks like a really good signing as well. Frank is building a really good, young side.
‘Tammy [Abraham] has done well up front, but he can play in any of the three front positions. I think it just shows that they are doing good things at Chelsea. Frank has done a great job, especially if they get top four.
‘If the deal is done without knowing that Chelsea are going to be in the Champions League, then it shows you that he was very impressed with what Frank and Chelsea are doing right now.
‘He will probably look at that Chelsea front line, with Willian and Pedro out of contract this summer, and think that he can be a regular in that team.’
‘Meanwhile at Liverpool, who is going to replace. He’s a really good player, but we don’t know right now, is he better than [Sadio] Mane, [Roberto] Firmino, [Mohamed] Salah?’ Redknapp added.
‘It’s one of the best front three in the world right now so he doesn’t want to go somewhere and be a number two or a sub. ‘Will they regret it? You don’t know but that is what he has got to do.
‘He has got to make Liverpool regret that decision, or at least make them think,
“I wish we had signed him!” ‘For Liverpool they have got to look it and think, if you bring someone like him in it could upset the balance of them and maybe they might think,
“Would it be worth the risk to bring in another player?” ‘They have three top class players who don’t get many injuries, why risk upsetting balance.’
