Timo Werner urged to snub Liverpool transfer by RB Leipzig team-mate

Timo Werner has been urged to snub a move to Liverpool this summer by his RB Leipzig team-mate Dani Olmo.

The Reds have identified Werner, who has scored 88 goals in 150 appearances for Leipzig, as a key target ahead of the summer transfer window.

The Germany striker has thrived in the Bundesliga and Jurgen Klopp is interested in bringing him to Anfield to bolster his attacking options.

But Spain midfielder Olmo, who joined Werner at RP Leipzig in January, believes the 24-year-old would be best served staying put.

‘He gives you a lot of options because he loves to move all over the pitch,’ Olmo told Goal.

‘He’s not a target man or a static striker, he likes to drift to the wings or drop into midfield to receive the ball and break the defensive line.

‘He’s so fast and he has the killer instinct – he’s scored a lot this season. He’s a player that gives you  a lot of opportunities in the way that he plays.

‘I think the place that he fits best is Leipzig and the Bundesliga. He’s doing pretty well where he is.’

Olmo has also hailed Leipzig’s French defender Dayot Upamecano, whose performances have attracted interest from the likes of Arsenal and Manchester United.

‘I love that player,’ Olmo added.

‘I first met him in the Euro Under-21 semi-final and I realised he’s a strong, fast and aggressive player, very hard to beat, and he’s young like me – we were both born in 1998.

‘He isn’t just a player for the future, but also for the present.’
