RB Leipzig star Timo Werner is having a phenomenal season, and the 23-year-old is being linked with a move to Premier League during the summer transfer window.

Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United have all been linked with the impressive striking star who has already bagged 20 goals alone in the German league, 4 in the Champions League and 2 in the DFB Cup this season. However, Liverpool hero Didi Hamann believes Werner will be more suited to either Chelsea or Manchester United than Liverpool.

In a column for German outlet Sky, Hamann explained his reasons as he wrote: “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.”
