Lambert backs Werner for Liverpool switch: Perfect for Klopp system

Former Borussia Dortmund star Paul Lambert thinks Timo Werner is a perfect fit for Liverpool.

The RB Leipzig forward, 24, is a target for the Reds, Chelsea and Bayern Munich.

But Lambert, currently in charge of Ipswich Town, thinks Werner suits Jurgen Klopp's style.

He said: "I saw him playing a few years ago and he was lightning quick.

"His model and Liverpool's model are the same. Everybody knows the way Liverpool play, with speed, and he has certainly got that. Leipzig are a quick, quick side and he has been brought up in a similar fashion of speed.

"That is their game. So would he fit in? Yes, I have no doubt he would fit into that just because of the way the lad is and the way he plays. Speed is definitely part of the two teams' DNA."
