Chelsea paid a whopping £47.5m to sign Timo Werner from RB Leipzig two years ago.

Werner was edging close to a move to Liverpool before Chelsea hijacked the deal.

Werner was asked what could have been, but he has claimed that he has no regrets over the move as he ended up winning the Champions League with Chelsea one year after.

Asked how close he came to joining Liverpool before his move to Chelsea, Werner told the Evening Standard: “The only thing I can say is they have a German manager.

“I have known him for many years before, because when I was in Stuttgart, he talked about going to Dortmund. Then I played not so well, so it was done.

“When I was in Leipzig, I had the possibility to come to the Premier League. Liverpool were also in my thoughts and were a big possibility for me, but at the end I decided for Chelsea and I won the Champions League title last year. It was not the worst decision.”
