Liverpool ‘missed a trick’ this summer not signing Timo Werner, and heres why!

Peter Crouch believes Liverpool ‘missed a trick’ by not signing Timo Werner this summer.

The German striker was strongly linked with a move to Anfield earlier in the transfer window and it is even believed that he was very keen on a move to Anfield to work under the guidance of Jurgen Klopp.

But he eventually joined Chelsea in a deal that was worth £54 million, as Liverpool’s transfer plans changed due to the coronavirus pandemic, and many have hit out at the club for not getting a deal done.

Now Crouchy believes Liverpool ‘missed a trick’ by not signing Timo Werner this summer, Speaking to the Daily Mail, he said: “It’s never a bad thing to bring in new players to freshen things up.

“Liverpool are still my idea of champions and their squad is fantastic but there are always areas that need some investment.

“I looked at the defence against Leeds. They have got three great players in Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip but I believe they could do with another addition there, as I wouldn’t want to see Fabinho used as the fourth-choice central defender.

“Look at the second goal they conceded, to Patrick Bamford. It was a rare mistake by Van Dijk that had a hint of complacency about it. Does he make the same mistake if Liverpool have signed a central defender this summer and pressure is being applied to his place? Competition raises your standards by an extra one or two per cent.

“There are only so many times Mohamed Salah, who baled out his team, and Sadio Mane can produce heroics. Adding another midfielder — such as Bayern Munich’s Thiago Alcantara — or back-up striker would be welcomed.

“I have a feeling they missed a trick not getting Timo Werner.”

Liverpool did have the chance to get a deal done, but they didnt.

So it will their fault if they missed out on the man.
