Chelsea signed agreement to sign Timo Werner of RB Leizpig

Timo Werner’s imminent transfer to Chelsea is a transfer that suits both the player and the club, said former Blues midfielder Michael Ballack.

RB Leipzig striker Werner, the Bundesliga’s second top scorer this season, is expected to join Chelsea when the transfer window opens at the end of the season.

Werner has a £ 49.4 million release clause – which expires Monday June 15 – in his Leipzig contract, and Chelsea has offered him a £ 200,000 a week deal.

They appear to have beaten their Premier League rivals Liverpool and Manchester United at the signing of the 24-year-old, and former German captain Ballack believes the move is a good one.

He said Sky Germany: “I think it is a good decision for both sides. For Timo, because he goes there, because his way of playing football suits him.

“I think with Chelsea he has chosen a club where he has a better chance of playing, which is very important to him.

“The team will be rebuilt, it will certainly be strengthened and Chelsea will spend a lot of money to compete at the top again. ”

“A good young team is being built there, it’s very promising. he [would be] play with even better players than in Leipzig. ”

Werner has been one of Germany’s most notable players this season, and his goals have helped Leipzig to third place in the Bundesliga with only four games left.

But Ballack says Werner will have to improve even more if he is to be successful in the Premier League, saying, “The intensity of the games in England is higher because there are so many games.

“You have to have your own well-organized pace, live a healthy life and avoid injuries.

Sky Sports expert Alan McInally believes RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner will be a great fit for Chelsea and says the player’s versatility will make him a major asset at Stamford Bridge.

” [It is] very important to improve your strength in duels. It’s more difficult for the attackers in England because the referees don’t whistle for everything.

“But Werner will quickly get used to the Premier League – he is fast, powerful and strong in a duel. “

Why Werner joins Chelsea

By Kaveh Solhekol, Sky Sports News reporter

The coronavirus pandemic has meant clubs have slashed their transfer budgets considerably, but Chelsea are owned by Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich and £ 49 million seems to be a reasonable price for a prolific 24-year-old striker who is still young enough to have a high resale value if he leaves Stamford Bridge.

Negotiations with Leipzig are managed by Chelsea manager Marina Granovskaia, and the two clubs did business last summer when promising Ethan Ampadu moved from Stamford Bridge to Leipzig on loan.

Frank Lampard also has more money to spend than some of his rivals because, while clubs like Real Madrid and Barcelona were spending fortunes last summer, Chelsea were serving a transfer ban.

When he considered where he was going to move this summer, Werner made it clear that he wanted to play in the Champions League. Chelsea will resume the Premier League season in fourth place, three points ahead of Manchester United. Fifth place could be enough to qualify for the Champions League this season if Manchester City loses its appeal against its European ban.
