The ex-Reds celebrity feels that the 23-year-old striker is prepared to leave RB Leipzig but believes he will be better off in Manchester or London than Liverpool.

Timo Werner should consider a move to Manchester United or Chelsea Rather than linking Liverpool, ex-Reds midfielder Dietmar Hamann believes.

The RB Leipzig striker has reportedly caught the eye of several top teams because his rise to prominence in the Bundesliga.

Liverpool are believed to be plotting a summer bid for the 23-year-old and he admitted this week that he’s “proud” to be connected into the Champions League winners, though Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann says he hopes to convince the Germany global to stay put for at least a year ago.

But former Bayern Munich midfielder Hamann says Werner is prepared to proceed to one of Europe’s main sides, though he’s not convinced Anfield would be the perfect destination.

“Timo Werner has always improved, he’s scored again at the Champions League and has scored over 20 goals in the Bundesliga this season,” Hamann wrote in a column for Sky .

“I expect him to play at a really major team soon. It’s obviously an honor for him to be connected to Liverpool.

“The question is: does he match against Liverpool? For me he is most powerful when he comes through the center and can use his best weapon: his pace.

“With [Roberto] Firmino, Liverpool have a striker who’s always playable and joins a lot with his team-mates.

“If Werner went to Liverpool, I’d rather see him out, but there are two complete grenades in the group with [Sadio] Mane and [Mohamed] Salah. If none of the 3 strikers become hurt or proceed, he won’t play and I do not think that is what he wants.

“Liverpool is the complete benchmark, but in my opinion he’d be better suited to Manchester United or Chelsea.”

Liverpool’s hopes of defending their Champions League title took a hit Tuesday when they lost 1-0 to Atletico Madrid at the first-leg of the last-16 tie.

And Hamann considers Jurgen Klopp’s staff could be amazed when they welcome the Spanish giants to Anfield in March.

“It will be hard for Liverpool after the defeat at Atletico,” he said.

“After winning 4-0 in the second leg last season against Barcelona [from the semi-finals], ​​everybody thinks they can do it, but they did not have one shot on target in Madrid.

“It’s nothing new, however, they have their problems away from home, which was the case last season. Atletico will even tear up in Liverpool, I expect a fascinating second leg.”
