Chelsea Complete £53m Timo Werner signing From RB Leipzig

After so many news going around the web about Chelsea and Leipzig striker Timo Werner, the London club has finally announced the £53million deal for RB Leipzig striker.

Chelsea after serving their transfer ban, Frank Lampard has been desperate to bolster his attacking options and has landed one of the finest strikers in Europe in Werner.

The German international, who has two games left to play with RB Leipzig, has signed a five-year deal worth £175,000-a-week.

Speaking after the club announced a deal had been struck, Werner reflected on the pride of sealing a switch to the Premier League.

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.'

Werner will join the club on July 1 having elected not to see through RB Leipzig's Champions League campaign when Europe's premier club competition picks up again in August.

Lampard's squad is taking impressive shape before the transfer window has even opened, with Hakim Ziyech having already sealed a move from Ajax in a £37m deal.
