Man Utd Target Timo Werner Close To Joining Chelsea
It is being reported by the mainstream media that Chelsea have reached an agreement with RB Leipzig for a deal to sign Timo Werner…
Chelsea are understood to be the favourites to complete the transfer of RB Leipzig’s coveted striker Timo Werner after they have made official contact with Leipzig, with a decision expected by the player next week.
The 24 year old international striker has scored 75 times in 122 games for RB Leipzig and has represented Germany 29 times scoring 11 goals so far in his career.
He has a very low €55 million euro release clause in his contract which expires on June 15 2020 and so far it is being reported that only Chelsea have made official contact with Leipzig for the transfer of the player.
It is also understood that Werner would be happy to play for Chelsea even though he has hinted in the past that he would like to move to Liverpool.
Werner has been quoted in the past speaking on Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp calling him the “best coach in the world.”
Werner has a love for Leipzig and its believed that he would not be interested in signing for another German side with a potential deal with Bayern Munich breaking down a year ago. He wants a move abroad to a top Champions League team.
