German striker, Timo Werner should consider a move to Manchester United or Chelsea ahead of a switch to Liverpool, according to Dietmar Hamann.
Hamann has come out to say that he feels Timo is ready to join a top team but he is not sure Anfield is the right place to go right now.
According to him, Werner keeps improving as a striker in the Bundesliga but he would be getting into a battle with the important Firmino if he decides to join Liverpool.
He added that for opportunities and chances to play in a top team in England, Werner has to sign for clubs like Manchester United or Chelsea.
His words, “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,”
“I trust him to play in a very big team soon. It is of course an honour for him to be linked to 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.”
On Liverpool vs Atletico, “It will be difficult for Liverpool after the defeat at Atletico,”
“After winning 4-0 in the second leg last season against Barcelona [in the semi-finals], everyone thinks they can do it, but they didn’t have a single shot on goal in Madrid.
“It is nothing new, however, that they have their problems away from home, that was already the case last season. Atletico will also tear up in Liverpool, I expect a fascinating second leg.”
