Chelsea’s £47.5m signing of Timo Werner is confirmed

Telegraph reporter Matt Law confirmed the news on Thursday: Chelsea have finalised the £47.5m signing of Timo Werner from RB Leipzig.

Of course, news of Chelsea’s transfer of Werner has been around for a few weeks.

The Blues swooped in for the 24-year-old German international after Liverpool reportedly had to pull out of the race for financial reasons.

Chelsea fans have now been told the following:

Werner will join the Blues on a five-year contract worth just over £170,000-a-week and will move to England at the end of the Bundesliga season.

Werner was convinced to join Chelsea by head coach Frank Lampard after he and technical and performance advisor Petr Cech made a pre-lockdown trip to speak with the player, his agent and his family.


Chelsea confirm Timo Werner signing


When will Werner leave RB Leipzig?

Werner is scheduled to arrive at Chelsea after the Bundesliga season wraps up in July, but before the Champions League season restarts in August.

Indeed, Chelsea have confirmed:

He will link up with his new team-mates in July, subject to passing a medical examination.

That’s a major blow for RB Leipzig, who have booked a spot in the last 8 of the competition.

Leipzig beat Tottenham 4-0 on aggregate in the last-16 of the Champions League.


Timo Werner celebrates his Chelsea move

Speaking to the Chelsea website after the announcement of his deal, Werner has said the following:

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.
