Hamann urges Werner to choose Man Utd, Chelsea over Liverpool

Liverpool hero Didi Hamann says RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner should snub a move to Anfield.

Hamann instead believes Werner should consider a switch to Chelsea or Manchester United.

"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," Hamann said.

"I trust him to play in a very big team soon. It is of course an honour for him to be linked with 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."
