Former Manchester United and Tottenham striker Dimitar Berbatov urges RB Leipzig forward Timo Werner to turn down interest from Liverpool and stay in the Bundesliga.

Former Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur striker Dimitar Berbatov has advised RB Leipzig forward Timo Werner to reject interest from the Premier League.

Werner has been heavily linked with a move to Liverpool this summer, while the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea and Real Madrid are among the other clubs to have been credited with an interest.

However, Berbatov believes that Werner would fare better if he stayed in the Bundesliga with Bayern Munich.

"There have been reports about Bayern Munich's interest in Timo Werner, and having played in the Bundesliga, Munich are up there with the biggest names like Real Madrid, Manchester United, Barcelona, Manchester City, Juventus and so on," Berbatov told Betfair.

"Every season they are up there in the Champions League and they have been dominant in Germany. To be honest, it looks like a sensible move for Werner, he knows the league, they know him there, he can get used to his surroundings a lot easier.

"The only thing for me that I may question is if he goes there he will have a lot of competition to face in Robert Lewandowski, Serge Gnabry, Kingsley Coman and potentially Leroy Sane, who they are also linked with, so there are a lot of similarities for one or two positions.

"But, like I said, it makes more sense for him to go there than move to England where it will probably take him a bit more time to adjust to things. When you are a player in that position and a few teams want you it feels good but it can make your head spin and you get sleepless nights because you want to make the right decision.

"I don't think Liverpool will miss out if he doesn't move to Merseyside, their front three are so good. I don't see many players coming close to them at the moment, the way they link up, the way they switch positions is so phenomenal. It's hard to see someone else fitting in the way they do."

Werner has scored 21 goals in just 25 Bundesliga games this season and has had a direct hand in 39 goals from 36 outings across all competitions.
