Asked about the recent speculation linking Werner with the Reds, ex-Liverpool striker Heskey told GentingBet: “Timo Werner is a young player who has done phenomenally well.

“When you’re bringing in young players, you want ones that are tried and tested, who know what it takes to perform at the top level.

“Those players are always going to be an asset. Werner looks phenomenal – his pace looks great.

“Klopp obviously knows a lot about the German league as well, so I’m sure he’ll be keen to get his teeth stuck into him.”
