Timo Werner believes he would fit in very well at Liverpool playing under “the best coach in the world” in Jurgen Klopp.
The RB Leipzig forward has been heavily linked with a move to Anfield this summer, although several other clubs have been credited with an interest in him.
Chelsea and Manchester United are just two other names that have been rumoured to be lining up moves for the Germany international.
The 23-year-old is believed to have a £51m release clause in his contract and his red hot form this season has got other teams licking their lips.

Werner scored his 27th goal of the campaign in Leipzig's 5-0 Bundesliga victory at Schalke on Saturday and he was asked about speculation over a move to Liverpool afterwards.
"Last year, until I extended my contract, it was always Bayern Munich [that I was linked with]. Now Liverpool has come up through the media and through our game in England," Werner told Sky in Germany.
"You have there the best coach in the world with Jurgen Klopp.
"There are many things that would suggest that my style of play might be a good fit, but I'm not worried about it because we have so much to do with Leipzig.

"You can see we won against Tottenham, but we also have a second leg. It's hard to think about where to play next year if you want to step on the gas here and now."
His current manager Julian Nagelsmann warned Werner, however, that he would have to bide his time if he did move to Liverpool.
He told Sport Bild: “It would be more difficult for Timo Werner to play at Liverpool than at Leipzig.

“He will not get the status he has here in the first few years and I tell him that too.
“The boys are seeing how we are developing and how much potential we have. We don’t leave anyone, who helps us, defenceless.”
Reports suggest Werner’s release clause is set to expire in April meaning Liverpool and anyone else interested will have to act quickly.
