Chelsea beat Liverpool to the signing of RB Leipzig striker despite the Reds being strongly linked with the 24 year old striker for several months.

Former Chelsea and Liverpool defender Glen Johnson has told Liverpool fans not to be worried with Werner’s Chelsea transfer.

Johnson told betdaqtips.com: “It looks as if Liverpool won’t be signing Werner which is obviously disappointing for Liverpool fans, but I wouldn’t worry too much about it.

“They’ve shown in the past that when they recruit they more often than not get it right, so I think you’ve just got to let them find the right players.

“Everyone thought Mohamed Salah was pricey when they signed him and look how much he’s worth now, so I’m sure there are players they’re looking at besides Werner.

“At the end of the day, Liverpool have plenty of pulling power nowadays and if they really wanted Werner, I think they would have gone out and got him, so for whatever reason they’ve decided against that.

“They have been far and away the best side in the league this season and while you don’t need to fix something that isn’t broken, successful teams should always be looking to strengthen and rebuild again.

“It might not be the players who are going to be first teamers straight away, but you’ve always got to be looking ahead and the players who are brought in should be chosen with that in mind.”
