RB Leipzig forward Timo Werner has been urged to snub Liverpool and join rivals Manchester United or Chelsea by former Reds hero Didi Hamann.
Werner has been impressive for Leipzig this season and was on target for his side as they beat Tottenham 1-0 in the Champions League on Wednesday. The forward has been linked with a move to Liverpool in the summer but Hamann believes the 23-year-old should snub his former club and sign for either Chelsea or United as he believes he will get more guaranteed game time.
"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 honor for him to be linked to Liverpool," Hamann wrote in his German Sky outlet column.
"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."
The Germany international has already netted 20 goals in the Bundesliga this season.
