Burley: Werner could eventual sign for Chelsea

A German has been tipped to make a move to England from Germany and that man is Timo Werner.

Former Chelsea Midfielder Burley believes competition for places at Liverpool could make Werner change his mind in favour of a move to Chelsea.

Burley insists there is no Surprises in Chelsea going for the German as he ticks every box for them.

Speaking to ESPN FC and SOCCER PUNCH learnt he said: "You want to back yourself as a player.

"You've got a manager in Klopp who will be very enthusiastic in trying to sell the platform to him.

"Clearly when I played, you played on the Saturday, you played on a Wednesday and expect to play the following Saturday if you played well enough. If you got told you were left out of the side, you knew it wasn't for resting purposes, it was because you were dropped.

"The game has changed, you've got to have a deep squad and a quality squad.

"I think Klopp can sell to Timo Werner that Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah have carried the load for Liverpool, and they're not going to play 50 or 60 games per year.

"I'm not surprised Chelsea would be interested, though, he ticks every box for them.

"He can play out wide, they've got wide players, he can play through the middle, he works hard, he presses when he's not got the ball, it absolutely makes sense for him."
