Even with the world seemingly tearing apart at the seams, there’s nothing like a new twist in a transfer saga to get football Twitter all riled up.
On Thursday evening, news broke of Chelsea entering pole position in the race for Timo Werner’s signature.
After months of being told that the RB Leipzig hotshot was 100%, definitely without a doubt going to be arriving at Anfield at the end of the season, Liverpool fans were unsurprisingly a bit miffed and directed the majority of their rage at the club’s current owners.
If Timo Werner doesn’t sign for Liverpool, I will officially be #FSGOUT

If we don’t get Werner, due to stingy circumstances, we bring back #FSGOut, if Chelsea can afford him, we can and if we miss out on a player of his caliber for a price as cheap as 50mil, we then know our owners have no real ambition to remain at the top of the game as a club

Not all Redmen supported this particular cause though. A significant proportion of fans were cool, calm and collected about the situation, insisting that the club must have bigger plans than Werner.
The only problem with that argument is…well, how much bigger can you get than a 24-year-old who’s managed 24 Bundesliga goals in just 29 games this season?
If we don’t get Werner I can only imagine we’re going bigger elsewhere

Alisson and Ox rejected Chelsea because they wanted to move to Liverpool. If Werner is sold on working with Klopp, there’s nothing to worry about.

And what about the Blue half of Twitter? As you can imagine, the mood was slightly different with Chelsea fans all over the world rejoicing at the news.
Chelsea could be young & dangerous…
– Werner (24)
– RLC (24)
– Christensen (24)
– Tammy (22)
– Fikayo (22)
– Pulisic (21)
– Mount (21)
– Reece James (20)
– CHO (19)
– Ampadu (19)
– Billy G (18)
– Tino (18)
And maybe Chilwell (23). But him or not, woah, that’s promising.
