Liverpool Relegated Player Transfer Roulette

Liverpool have already felt the brunt of the financial pinch caused by the ongoing pandemic. Long linked with Timo Werner, the Reds — who were either unwilling or unable to match the financial package on offer in West London — were beaten to the signing of the German international by Chelsea.
