Werner was chased by multiple clubs across Europe like Manchester United and Liverpool and Bayern Munich but it was Frank Lampard’s men who ultimately have managed to secure the signature.
Werner is reportedly set to join Chelsea by July on a five-year contract that will see him earn £10 million per year excluding bonuses.
Chelsea had already signed Hakim Ziyech earlier and now the addition of Werner would mean that the Blues have real firepower in their frontline.
Lampard will be happy with the signature as Werner would slot in nicely to the young players’ age bracket. Moreover, his versatility would mean that the former RB Leipzig man can play as an out and out striker or as a wing forward depending on the situation.
Chelsea seems determined in this season’s transfer window and has been further linked with Andre Onana, the goalkeeper of Ajax and Ben Chilwell, the Leicester City left-back.
