RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner believes Liverpool are the "best team in the world" and says he is "very proud" to have been linked with a move to the Premier League leaders.

The 23-year-old has attracted interest from across Europe after scoring 86 goals in 145 appearances for Leipzig, including a penalty in their 1-0 win over Tottenham in Champions League on Wednesday.

Reports in Bild last month claimed Anfield is Werner's preferred destination should he decide to move to the Premier League, although Sky Sports News understands Liverpool are not planning to make a move at this stage.
