Timo Werner makes huge Liverpool transfer admission with Chelsea FA Cup final warning

By Luke Thrower

Chelsea forward Timo Werner claims he has no regrets choosing his transfer to Stamford Bridge over Anfield. The Germany international has struggled at times since making the switch, lacking the clinical edge to score on a regular basis.

The 26-year-old joined from RB Leipzig in 2020 for just under £50million, having scored an impressive 95 goals in 159 competitive appearances for the club. However, since the move to London, he has scored just 23 in 89 appearances across all competitions.

A few weeks ago, the forward found some form, with Thomas Tuchel claiming he did the right things to find that goal-scoring touch again: "What Timo's done is exactly what he needs to do, of course. Wait, be patient, work hard, and put the team first, and be ready to help the team because as a striker, you can help within seconds and turn things around."

However, things could have turned out very differently for Werner, as he was heavily linked with a move to Liverpool before joining Chelsea. The style of the German somewhat suits that of the Reds, with his wide starting positions and inside runs matching that of the current style under Jurgen Klopp.

Despite that, and how the transfer to the Blues has worked out so far, the striker claims he doesn't regret making the switch. Speaking to the Evening Standard, he said: "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."

Instead of lining up for Liverpool, Werner could be starting against them on Saturday when the two clubs clash in the FA Cup final. It could result in another piece of silverware at the club, though he has lost in the last two FA Cup finals since joining the club.

Discussing the upcoming final, he said to the Mirror: "To win the FA Cup at the end of the season gives the season this touch. It is one of the biggest cups in Europe. The oldest cup in England. We want to win this cup. We are all happy that we have also a very good opponent, where it makes it much fun to play in this final, and we want to win it."

Whether the Blues can manage to overcome their recent Wembley hoodoo remains to be seen, but they will be hoping that is the case come late Saturday evening.
