Transfer: He needs five opportunities to score one goal – Souness criticizes Man Utd target



Liverpool legend, Graeme Souness does not believe Timo Werner will be a success at Tottenham Hotspur, labelling the incoming signing as ‘stocking-filler’.

Werner is set to join Tottenham this January transfer window on a six-month loan deal from RB Leipzig.

The German is best known to English fans for a disappointing two-year spell at Chelsea.

Werner has also been a target for Manchester United earlier this month.

But Souness is not convinced the 27-year-old will succeed at Spurs, insisting the forward needs five opportunities to score one goal.

“He needs five opportunities to score a goal, and he had one good season prior to coming here,” Souness told talkSPORT.

“He found it difficult to get goals and I would say nothing’s changed, he’s gone back to Leipzig and this season played eight [Bundesliga] games and scored two goals.

“He’s a stocking filler; he’s another body. I don’t think he will do very well, but having said that, he’s the kind of player that will get three or four chances every game because he’s rapid and gets himself in the right place.”
