Timo Werner says he would rather join Manchester United than Liverpool if offered the choice.

Werner has emerged as a Premier League target over the last few years, having impressed in the Bundesliga with RB Leipzig.

Arsenal have also been linked with the forward, who has scored 16 goals and assisted four in 33 games in all competitions this season.

The Germany international admits a move to the Premier League would be “a dream”, but he would prefer to link up with United instead of Liverpool.

“Yes, playing in the Premier League is a dream for me,” he told FourFourTwo. “I would like to play for two or three clubs, and Manchester United are one of those clubs. But probably not in the next few years – later, when my English is a little bit better! I’m very comfortable at RB Leipzig, though.

“Manchester United and Liverpool were the teams I watched quite a lot in England. They were the two that I’m a little bit a fan of, because they have so much history. When Alex Ferguson was the coach, United won everything and were outstanding.

“In Liverpool it’s also their stadium and the atmosphere. But when I have to decide, I’m more Manchester United than Liverpool.

“I’m now at a point where at some stage in the future I’d like to play in a team that wins titles.”
