Timo Werner warned off Liverpool transfer by Dietmar Hamann who suggests Man Utd

Liverpool would not be the best destination for Timo Werner according to their Champions League winning former midfielder Dietmar Hamann.

The ex-Germany international has warned the RB Leipzig striker that he would fit in better at either Manchester United or Chelsea because he wouldn’t play regularly unless one of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane or Roberto Firmino was to leave Anfield.

Werner has scored 26 goals in just 32 appearances so far this season, taking his tally for Die Roten Bullen to 87 in 146.

That impressive record has attracted interest from some of the biggest sides on the planet, including that of his countryman Jurgen Klopp.

Hamann wrote for Sky Germany: “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.

“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.”

One or both of United and Chelsea could to miss out on Champions League qualification with Jose Mourinho’s men winning their last three domestic outings, which could have an impact on Werner’s plans.

"I know that Liverpool is the best team at the moment in the world," Werner told Norwegian TV channel Viasport Football.

"When you're linked with that team it makes me very proud.

"It's a pleasure but I know that Liverpool have a lot of good players and I have to improve myself, to learn much more things to get on this level to play there."
