German football expert Andy Brassell even thinks Chelsea could now sign the 24-year-old Timo Werner for CHEAPER than £53m.
Werner has become one of the most talked about players ahead of the summer window, with his name mentioned on a daily basis for all the Premier League big boys.
His £53 million release clause runs out this week, and Brassell thinks we could now sign the 24-year-old for CHEAPER than £53m that he been talked about even since news broke that we are closing in on a deal
He told Premier League productions: “It’s been held up a bit by what’s happening post-pandemic, which is going to effect all transfers going forward.
“We know where we are with Werner more than any other transfer because there’s been a buyout clause in there the whole time.
“Liverpool decided they weren’t going to meet that, and that’s why Chelsea were allowed to come in and got an agreement with Werner.
“At the moment it’s the case that the medical can’t take place at the moment, because if the Chelsea medical staff went over to Germany, they’d have to self-quarantine for 14 days.
“It has been suggested in Germany that because Leipzig are happy to facilitate the move, and they’ve planned forward to do so, they may be happy to take a discount on the £53m buyout clause.
“The fact that the buyout clause is due to expire today, is not so much an issue. We do still expect it to still get over the line.”
