Timo Werner raves about Liverpool-bound teammate Naby Keita

Timo Werner has told Four Four Two that RB Leipzig team-mate and Liverpool-bound midfielder Naby Keita is a "world-class talent" whom he has compared to Andres Iniesta.

The 23-year-old midfielder will link up with Liverpool this summer after officially agreeing a deal to join the Reds back in August.

Some £48 million was paid to secure his signature, and Werner tells Four Four Two that the Premier League giants have made a brilliant investment.

The German said: "Naby will be a world-class player because he has everything.

"I think he's a bit like Andres Iniesta, the same type of player, because he can dribble, shoot and score. He has a lot of qualities that the young Iniesta had."

Werner has played with Keita for close to two years in Germany and his comments will undoubtedly excite Liverpool fans.

Keita has managed five goals and five assists in 20 Bundesliga starts this season, and his ability to carry the ball through midfield is just what Jurgen Klopp might need on Merseyside next season.

It looks increasingly likely that Emre Can will leave Liverpool this summer, but the imminent arrival of Keita will soften the blow of losing a player like Can for free.
