After the signing of Ziyech, Chelsea FC has now completed their second singing for 2020 summer, and it is highly rated German striker, Timo Werner.
The 24-year-old joins the growing list of Chelsea youngsters after agreeing to a five-year deal with the English club.
Chelsea agreed to pay €50m (£45m) to trigger the release clause of Werner, who will earn more than €10m (£9m) per season at Chelsea.
Speaking on his move to Chelsea, an excited Timo Werner said:
“I am delighted to be signing for Chelsea, it is a very proud moment for me to be joining this great club. I of course want to thank RB Leipzig, the club and the fans, for four fantastic years. You will forever be in my heart. I look forward to next season with my new team-mates, my new manager and of course the Chelsea fans. Together we have a very successful future ahead of us.”
Chelsea director, Marina Granovskaia also spoke about the transfer saying;
“We are very excited that Timo Werner has chosen to join Chelsea. He is a player who was coveted all over Europe and it is no surprise, he has that rare mix of being young and exciting and yet established and proven. We can’t wait to have Timo on board, but until then we wish him and RB Leipzig all the best for the rest of this season.”
Timo Werner will see out the remainder of the Bundesliga season with RB Leipzig before joining up with his new team-mates in July, but won’t be available for the remainder of the UEFA Champions league.
He has so far made a total of 157 appearances for RB Leipzig, scoring 93 goals and making 40 assists for the German club.
