Chelsea Seal £53Million Timo Werner Move

Good news for Chelsea fans as the club have announced the £53million deal for RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner. For sometime, the Stamford Bridge side have been in desperate need for a top striker even though Tammy Abraham has been fantastic.

Werner has signed a five-year deal worth £175,000-a-week.

The German international is easily one of the deadliest strikers in Europe despite being only 24 years.

While reacting on his switch to Chelsea after a deal had been struck, 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 added, ‘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.’

Liebe RB Leipzig Familie, Time to say goodbye – nach 4 wunderbaren und prägenden Jahren ist es heute an der Zeit euch mitzuteilen, dass ich mich entschieden habe in der nächsten Saison nach England zu wechseln.  Mit großer Vorfreude und dennoch schweren Herzens gehe ich diesen neuen Schritt in meinem Leben. Ich kann mich noch gut erinnern, als ich 2016 als 20-Jähriger nach Leipzig kam. Mein erstes Spiel gegen Hoffenheim, mein erstes Heimspiel gegen Dortmund, mein erstes Tor gegen den HSV… Nun, 4 Jahre später, blicke ich auf so viele schöne Erlebnisse, Erfolge und Begegnungen zurück, die ich immer bei mir behalten werde. Deshalb möchte ich DANKE sagen. VIELEN DANK an die Fans, meine Teamkollegen, die Verantwortlichen, die Mitarbeiter, an alle weiteren Menschen, die ich hier bisher kennen gelernt habe und an diese wunderbare Stadt Leipzig, in der ich mich von Tag Eins zuhause gefühlt habe. Gleichzeitig freue ich mich total auf dieses neue, spannende Kapitel in meiner Karriere in England, das zur neuen Saison beginnt. Jetzt geht‘s aber natürlich erst einmal darum, die Saison in Leipzig erfolgreich zu beenden! Euer Timo 👏
