Former Liverpool star urge Timo Werner not to join Reds


Dietman Hamman has urged Timo Werner to snub Liverpool transfer for either Chelsea or Manchester United

Liverpool are vying to seal Timo Werner's deal in the summer with the RB Leipzig forward having a release clause of around £50million that is said to expire in April.

Hamann says it is an honour for the German striker to be linked with the Reds.

But reckons he would get more game time if he joined either Chelsea or Manchester United.

"Timo Werner has continuously improved, he has scored again in the Champions League and has already scored more than 20 goals in the Bundesliga this season," Hamann wrote in his column for Sky Germany.

"I trust him to play in a very big team soon. It is of course an honour for him to be linked to Liverpool.

"The question is: does he match Liverpool? For me he is strongest when he comes through the middle and can use his greatest weapon: his speed.

"With [Roberto] Firmino, Liverpool have a striker who is always playable and connects a lot with his team-mates.

"If Werner went to Liverpool, I would rather see him outside, but there are two absolute grenades in the team with [Sadio] Mane and [Mohamed] Salah.

"If none of the three strikers get injured or move, he won’t play and I don’t think that’s what he wants.

"Liverpool is the absolute benchmark, but in my view he would be better suited to Manchester United or Chelsea."
