Liverpool’s reliability to Divock Origi kept them from marking “splendid” Timo Werner from RB Leipzig, as indicated by Michael Owen.
Werner was vigorously connected with a transition to Liverpool recently, and he filled exchange hypothesis by freely communicating his conviction that he would be a solid match for Jurgen Klopp’s framework at Anfield.
