Werner and Havertz are great players. Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has described Bundesliga stars Timo Werner and Kai Havertz as “great” players.
RB Leipzig striker Werner had been heavily linked with a move to Anfield, but Chelsea are now close to signing the Germany forward. Although Leipzig’s managing director has denied a deal has been completed.
And Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Havertz – another rising international star of interest to the Reds – is a target for Bayern Munich, with reports in Germany suggesting that will be his next destination.
Werner and Havertz are great players
“There are a lot of good players on this planet,” Klopp told Sky Germany. “Timo Werner is a great player, Kai Havertz is a great player.
“There are all sorts of rumours in England about who Manchester United are going to pick, Chelsea are going to pick,” he said.
“It’s rather quiet here (at Liverpool) at the moment, I think it’s safe to say. If you want to take it seriously and run a normal business and depend on income and have no idea how much you will earn. Especially because we don’t know when we can start playing with spectators again.
“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.”
