Timo Werner is not the player Liverpool should be looking to add to their side, according to former Reds midfielder Dietmar Hamann. RB Leipzig forward Werner is believed to be ready to secure a move to Liverpool if the Merseyside club are willing to pay his £52m release clause before it expires on June 15. However, ex-Germany international Hamann says he isn’t too sure if Liverpool need the 24-year-old - who he believes is not as 'skillful' as Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.

"He's always expressed how fond he is of Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool, the club that he maybe wants to join. But the thing with Liverpool is you've probably got the best front three in world football. "If you play out wide for Liverpool, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane are both very tricky players, they are very skillful, and Werner is not that type of player. His biggest asset by far is his pace and with Liverpool being so superior to most teams, most of them sit back and if you deny Werner space, he's a lot less effective. "I'm sure there are players out there who will help Liverpool more next season than Werner."
