Liverpool were thought to be frontrunners in the race for RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner but Chelsea are now believed to have an edge over Liverpool in the race for the German striker.

According to European football expert Andy Brassell, Werner wants regular playing time and for that reason Chelsea could be potential suitors over Liverpool.

“Of course he’s made such a push for Liverpool in the media opportunities he’s had over recent weeks, but I wonder if Chelsea could be in the mix as well,” he told talkSPORT.

“You could see him walking into that team a lot easier.

“The question is with Liverpool, especially with them going out the Champions League, it does tell you that success, however good, it is finite.

“And at some point Liverpool, however brilliant they are, they’re going to have to make changes to that team.

“You can’t leave a team and just say: ‘It’s perfect, we can’t improve it’. That’s now how football works.

“So the idea of Werner coming in to compete with those players and maybe even replacing one of them eventually is not completely off the table.”
