Chelsea complete £53m Timo Werner transfer deal.
CHELSEA have confirmed Timo Werner will join them from RB Leipzig this summer for £53million.
according to the Sun, the 24-year-old, who has 11 goals in 29 caps for Germany, has penned a £9million-a-year contract with the Blues, worth £170k-a-week.
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."
Frank Lampard visited Werner before the coronavirus outbreak to hold talks with the attacker over the transfer.
And he has continued that pursuit throughout lock down with a number of phone conversations.
His efforts have convinced the ex-Stuttgart forward that his future lies in West London.
He will leave Leipzig after a hugely-successful four-year stint in which he fired 93 goals in 157 appearances.
Chelsea chief Marina Granovskaia said: "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."
