‘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.

‘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.’
