Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has questioned RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner’s plans to join Liverpool.
Ferdinand is a big fan of Werner and spoke of the German’s options in an Instagram Q&A.
He said, “What he’s been doing for his club, he’s been playing particularly well he is their goal threat and so, if I’m Liverpool, I 100 per cent take him because they haven’t got that back-up for the front-three at the moment.
“If one of them gets injured for a sustained amount of time, they haven’t got anyone – as well as Divock Origi has done, the Champions League exploits, I’d want more than that.
“If I was Werner I’d be thinking: ‘I don’t think Salah is gonna be here that much longer, Mane might get bought out of here as well so I could get my chance that way’ but also I’d be thinking there’s enough games in the season to get games and I can make an impact, try and push my way in.
“But there’s other clubs… Chelsea I think are interested in him. He would be massive for Chelsea, an unbelievable signing for Chelsea.
“I think United would go for him as well. I think he’d be great for Manchester United, definitely.
“Another one added to that great group of players that they’ve got up front.
