It’s been quite a year for Timo Werner.

Second highest scorer in the Bundesliga, he’s now wanted by a host of Premier League clubs.

But after a deal with Bayern Munich fell through last year, everyone was expecting the young German striker to end up in Liverpool.

Last week, though, it became apparent that the Merseyside club couldn’t afford him, opening the door for Chelsea to make an approach.

In this episode, we ask: why can Chelsea buy Timo Werner and Liverpool can’t?
