Liverpool seemed assured of beating Chelsea in the race to sign Timo Werner from RB Leipzig, but at the end, it was Chelsea who eventually won the race for the signing of the much coveted forward.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp had several conversations with Werner but the 24-year-old chose Chelsea at the end.

Former Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has now sent a message to Liverpool, advising the Reds to opt against signing top players and rather focus on upcoming talents due to the strength of their starting eleven.

Writing in his column for the Sunday Times, Rooney explained: “Transfers-wise, the one thing Liverpool could strengthen is their bench.

“They could do with more back-up for that front three but passed on Timo Werner partly because they couldn’t offer a player of his calibre a starting position.

“It’s a bit like the Harry Kane situation at Tottenham in that you would hesitate to join Spurs as a No 9 because you know you won’t play ahead of Kane.

“Any forward approached by Liverpool will be thinking, ‘How am I going to get into that front three?’ Top players don’t want to sit on anyone’s bench.

“Maybe the solution for Liverpool is to get a brilliant young forward, like Manchester City did with Gabriel Jesus, who is willing to go there for a couple of seasons and learn.”

    Chelsea is the best team to be.
    Anybody to be signed in Chelsea should appreciate and be proud of the chance.
