Jamie Carragher does not think Timo Werner would get into Liverpool's current starting XI but says he could become a great player in the Premier League.


Germany international Werner was heavily linked with a move to Premier League champions Liverpool but eventually signed for Chelsea for a reported fee of £53m this summer.


The former RB Leipzig striker made his English top flight debut for Frank Lampard's Blues in their 3-1 win at Brighton on Monday and also won the penalty that Jorginho scored in the first half at the Amex stadium.


However, when football expert Carragher was asked if the 24-year-old could be the one that got away, Carragher replied on Sky Sports' Monday Night Football: 'He could be.


'Right now, he wouldn't get in the Liverpool front three.


'Watching him for Leipzig, you think about how much he loves that left channel.


'For Liverpool, you think of the greatest striker in the Premier League in Thierry Henry - who used to favour that left-hand side.


'He can play left of the front three, but predominantly, he will be the central striker.'


Chelsea face Liverpool on Sunday in their second Premier League game of the 2020-21 season.
