£85million struggling Liverpool star compared to £45million Chelsea flop

Tony Cascarino has compared misfiring £85million Liverpool striker Darwin Nunez to former Chelsea flop Timo Werner.

Cascarino fears Nunez’s early struggles are eerily similar to those experienced by Werner during his time at Stamford Bridge when his industry were undermined by his wastefulness in front of goal.

“He wasn’t clinical enough and he’s going to have to become a better finisher,” Cascarino told talkSPORT.

“He’s doing everything right to get in the position to score don’t stop doing that. I feel like he’ll go on a run, he will do beecause he’s got such devastating pace.

“Liverpool fans are really enjoying his performances and they’ll take to him because of his desire to make other people’s jobs easier.’

Nunez has missed 14 big chances so far this season, more than any other player in the Premier League.

“He reminds me of Timo Werner where he couldn’t buy a goal, his pace was brilliant he never stopped working,” added Cascarino.

“It didn’t finish well but it feels a little bit like that but there is a bit more about Nunez I do think he’ll come good but I was never convinced he’d come good.”
