Liverpool next? Adams says RB Leipzig teammate Werner destined for elite

RB Leipzig attacker Tyler Adams says teammate Timo Werner is destined for the elite of the game.

Werner has made it clear he wants to join European champions Liverpool this summer.

And Adams told ESPN: "People are often focused not just on his goalscoring ability but how fast he is, he's absolutely rapid.

"That's not one of the qualities that sticks out the most.

"The quality that sticks out the most is how many ways he's able to score.

"He can score from the left, the right, centrally, we played him as a number ten and he was running out of the midfield and scoring goals.

"There's just so many roles you can fit him in, that's what makes him such a unique piece.

"If you're able to score in that many different ways, you'll be able to play at the highest level for a really long time, [for] the biggest clubs in the world, the national team.

"He's a pleasure to play with. It makes it easy playing as a midfielder knowing you can play the ball over the top and he'll catch it no matter what.

"He's a great guy and a great player."
