Chelsea close in on Bundesliga deal as Blues ‘in direct contact’ to sign hitman Werner
Chelsea have made direct contact with RB Leipzig about a summer deal for Timo Werner.
German striker Werner, is rated as one of the hottest prospects in Europe, with reports in the media all suggesting that he is seeking that big move to further develop his name in the game, with a host of top clubs linked with a possible move.
The German is one of the top scorers in Europe this season with 26 goals in all competitions, and is tipped to become one of the most deadly strikers in the game, with many believing that Lampard is a massive fan of the talented young German and firmly believes he could add something to the side.
We failed to get their transfer business done in the January window but have already kicked off the summer window with the signing of Hakim Ziyech, who will officially arrive when the transfer window officially opens up.
And according to Kicker, we are looking to beat Liverpool off to the signature of Werner and have already made contact about a possible move to Stamford Bridge.
Lampard needs to add a world class defender, a leader at the back, he also needs to add some superstardom to that midfield, a creative force, and he also needs to delve into that transfer kitty, spend some big money and acquire Werner.
We have a brilliant young striker in the shape of Tammy ABraham and dont need to delve into their transfer kitty in order to sign a striker to replace the Englishman, but if there is a chance to sign up Werner in the summer they should definitely take it, he would come in and add some more fire-power to the squad.
