Timo Werner is an “instinctive” talent in the Eden Hazard mould, says Chelsea legend Alan Hudson.

Going into that summer transfer window, Frank Lampard knew that he needed to delve into that transfer kitty and land a striker that would bring immediate goals to the club, and after netting 34 of them last season, Werner was their man.

He has fared admirably during the early weeks of his time in England, with eight goals in 13 appearances, as he continues to adjust to life in the Premier League, with many believing There is the promise of more to come from the 24-year-old as he continues to find his feet at Stamford Bridge.

And Hudson believes a potential talisman of the future is capable of emulating one from the recent past, The Blues icon told CaughtOffside: “Werner is instinctive and needs to be left to roam, like Hazard, he has no real position and flits through the game sometimes unnoticed and then will pounce.

“I like him a lot and had he taken his chances at the weekend the Golden Boot is there for him, but it still is, he is a thrilling player with a great eye for goal and can also play the other part of assisting, he is a very clever player, not quite a Eden Hazard but who is?”

Werner has been brilliant for the club in the opening weeks of the season and will surely pass that 20-goal mark this season, which would be a very good return from a player that is rated one of the most exciting in Europe.
