Timo Werner must do all he can to make Liverpool regret not signing him, Jamie Redknapp has said.
Jamie recently revealed that LFC’s reluctance to complete the £54 million ($68m) deal might be a regrettable move for the club in future.
According to him, the German would be an amazing signing for Chelsea and he would blend in well alongside Hakim Ziyech in Chelsea’s young team.
He added that the fact that Werner decided to move despite being unsure of the club’s UCL status proves that he believes in what Lampard is building.
His words, “It’s a great signing.
“They have got Hakim Ziyech as well and he looks like a really good signing as well. Frank is building a really good, young side.
“Tammy Abraham has done well up front, but he can play in any of the three front positions. I think it just shows that they are doing good things at Chelsea. Frank has done a great job, especially if they get top four.
“If the deal is done without knowing that Chelsea are going to be in the Champions League, then it shows you that he was very impressed with what Frank and Chelsea are doing right now.
“He will probably look at that Chelsea front line, with Willian and Pedro out of contract this summer, and think that he can be a regular in that team.”
“At Liverpool, who is he going to replace? He’s a really good player, but we don’t know right now, is he better than Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah?”
“It’s one of the best front three [attackers] in the world right now so he doesn’t want to go somewhere and be a number two or a sub.
“Will they regret it? You don’t know but that is what he has got to do.
“He has got to make Liverpool regret that decision, or at least make them think: ‘I wish we had signed him!’”
