Liverpool target Timo Werner’s pace isn’t his best asset claims RB Leipzig team-mate
Liverpool transfer target Timo Werner is “a pleasure to play with”, according to RB Leipzig team-mate Tyler Adams. The midfielder sang the praises of German ace Werner, who has been linked with a move to Anfield.
Liverpool continue to be linked with a move to sign Werner in the summer.
The German striker has been on fire this season, and hasn’t been shy about his admiration for the world champions.
Jurgen Klopp is believed to be a big fan of the striker, who has found the net 21 times in 25 Bundesliga games this campaign.
And it has been reported that Liverpool will look to make a move once the window opens in order to bolster their attacking options.

Appearing on ESPN FC, he declared that Werner is a “great guy” while backing him to go on to play for one of the bigger clubs in the world.
