Timo Werner has admitted he could have joined Liverpool with the Reds having been interested in the forward.

Werner made the move to Chelsea from RB Leipzig earlier this summer despite plenty of communication from the Reds.

The German went straight into Frank Lampard’s side though there were questions as to where he would fit in under Jurgen Klopp.

Though Werner has admitted he could have moved to Anfield, though a switch to Stamford Bridge was a “better fit”.

“In another world, it could have happened,” Werner said. “If LFC call, you have to listen and think about it.

“They are one of the best teams on the world, with a super coach — a German coach to boot. Of course you think about that.

“But in the end, my decision went Chelsea’s way. Not because there was anything wrong with Liverpool. But at Chelsea, the whole package was a better fit for me.”

Klopp had explained that Liverpool couldn’t afford to make the move for Werner when Chelsea did with the coronavirus pandemic causing havoc.

“There are a lot of good players on this planet,” Klopp said earlier in the summer. “Timo Werner is a great player, Kai Havertz is a great player.

“Right time, opportunity – everything has to come together. Six, seven weeks ago, we didn’t know if we could play again this year.

“If we hadn’t played the second half of the season, we would have thought, ‘OK, when can you really play football again?’ And now it starts right away.

“We act as if everything is already settled. It’s not settled. We use this little loophole we’ve been left to play football again.

“Everything else we have to see the moment it happens. We can’t pretend now that everything’s going to be fine in the future.

“At the moment, all clubs are losing money. Without spectators, we have to pay back the season tickets and probably sell none next year.

“At least maybe without the first 10 or 15 games. The VIP areas won’t be packed and the tickets won’t be sold. This will have an impact on other partners and things will look a bit different.

“Discussing with the players about things like salary waivers and on the other hand buying a player for £50-60m, we have to explain.”
