Most likely, Leipzig striker Timo Werner will leave Germany during the summer transfer window and will continue his career in the EPL. Werner has already agreed to play for Chelsea. The aristocrats will pay 49.4 million Pounds to Leipzig.
German Sport1 journalist Florian Plettenberg wrote on social media that Werner is very close to moving to Chelsea. In addition, Frank Lampard, the head coach of the “Aristocrats,” is interested in the player and is in direct contact with Timo. The Londoners are in the process of building a new project, and the German player is the main choice. And for Werner, Liverpool is not really a priority.
Influential British publication The Telegraph also reports that Timo Werner will continue his career at London’s Chelsea from the new season.
Werner will receive 10 m euros a year
In addition to the English, the German press was also actively writing about Werner’s transfer to the Aristocrats. Apparently the transfer has taken place and needs to be confirmed in the near future.
According to reports, Chelsea will buy Werner’s contract from Leipzig and pay the German club 49.4 million pounds (60 million euros). Also, the player will sign a 5-year contract with the Londoners. He will receive almost 10 million euros a year in salary.
Recall that this is the second transfer for Frank Lampard’s team. In the winter, the Blues have reached an agreement with Ajax. So, Hakim Ziyech will move to Stamford Bridge from the new season.
In the current draw of the German Bundesliga, Timo Werner took part in 29 matches with the Leipzig shirt. He has 7 assists with 25 goals.
