“Yes but they’re talking to Inter about swapping players and it’s the only way it could happen.

Former Liverpool and United forward Michael Owen has compared Werner to Fernando Torres, although the Liverpool version rather than the Spaniard who played for Chelsea.
The Spaniard set the league alight for the Reds, scoring 65 times in just 102 games in England’s top flight.
But he switched to Chelsea in January 2011 for £50m and would go on to net just 20 times in 110 matches.
