Chelsea are getting an Owen like player in Werner fans have been told
Chelsea are getting a “Michael Owen-like” frontman in Timo Werner, says Tony Cascarino, with the Germany international expected to be a “real danger player” for the Blues.
It is believed that Werner will sign a massive £175,000-a-week contract on a big five-year contract, meaning that we will end their chase to land a top-class forward in the coming windows.
Cascarino believes Frank Lampard has got himself quite the coup, with there similarities to be drawn between Werner’s game and that of an ex-England international who once starred for Liverpool and landed the 2001 Ballon d’Or.
“He predominantly likes to play on the left, but he’s quite versatile,” Cascarino told TalkSport of Werner.
“His outstanding feature is his pace; his pace over 10 yards is extraordinary, lightning quick… Michael Owen-like.
“He tries to get on the back of defenders all the time and comes in off the left to try and get the goals in.
“He gets a lot of one-on-ones and he’s a real handful.
“But there is a lot of improvement to be made; I don’t think he’s the most technically gifted. When I’ve watched him I’ve always thought his touch is a bit off for someone who has so many goals.
“But there is a real danger player in there, and I think Lampard wants goals from more areas in his team.”
There has been alot said about the brilliance of Werner over the past few days, but are massive fans of the man and believe that he will score goals for fun next season.
If the media dont get on his back for one or two bad games, he will start quickly, if not, the British media will rip him to pieces.[the_ad id=”164″]
