Dietmar Hamann has revealed that he does not want Liverpool to push through with a deal for RB Leipzig forward Timo Werner.
Since the turn of the year, the Merseyside giants have been heavily linked with the Germany international, who is expected to move to a bigger club during the next transfer window.
However, Champions League winner Hamann feels that his countryman would struggle to hold down a place in the starting lineup at Anfield.
Speaking to The Athletic's Steilcast Podcast, the ex-midfielder said: "I don't think he's a player for [Bayern] Munich or Liverpool [with] the way they play at the moment.
"I read quotes from journalist or people close to the club in Liverpool when he always said Liverpool is a great club, [Jurgen] Klopp is the greatest trainer, that he was a bit too forward in showing interest in going to Liverpool.
"Where's he going to play? Even if [Sadio] Mane or [Mohamed] Salah go, out wide is not his position and the centre-forward position, the way they do play, is probably the most crucial one.
"[Roberto] Firmino is probably a bit underrated in some people's eyes. He's a ball-playing centre-forward, he probably doesn't get the goals that other players get, but he brings other players into position and that's certainly not Werner's game, so a no from me."
Werner has contributed 25 goals and nine assists from just 33 outings in the Bundesliga and Champions League this season.
