Dietmar Hamann may think that Timo Werner is better suited to Chelsea or Manchester United, but the RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner seems to be keen on moving to Liverpool instead.

Former Liverpool midfielder Hamann recently wrote in his Sky Germany column that Werner would struggle to play regularly at Anfield, and said that he is better suited to United or Chelsea.

However, the striker himself seems to be suggesting that he wants to join Jurgen Klopp’s side in the summer transfer window.

 

In midweek, Werner told Via Sport that he is flattered to be linked with Liverpool, and he recently told Sky Germany that he would fit in at the Reds and raved about manager Jurgen Klopp (click here and here to read more).

Liverpool have been linked with the 23-year-old striker, with The Times reporting that both the Reds and their Premier League rivals Chelsea want to secure the services of the youngster in the summer transfer window.
