Lamps told new world class signing Timo Werner ‘is a good fit’ for Chelsea
Pundit Alan McInally believes RB Leipzig forward Timo Werner would be a good fit at Chelsea and says the player’s versatility would make him a huge asset
He has scored 75 goals in 122 matches since making his RB Leipzig debut in 2013. Only Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski (29) has netted more Bundesliga goals than Werner (25) this season.
His performances, and that relatively low price tag on his head has meant that we have made the first move to try and get the little star to sign up, with reports suggesting he has agreed a £170,000-a-week deal to make the move to London.
And Sky Sports pundit McInally has opened up and claimed that the German striker will be a very good fit for the the club
He told Sky Sports: “He’s a really good player and £50m in the world of football nowadays is as good a price as you’re going to get for a player who has so much potential. What he has is a versatility, but he doesn’t just play through the middle – he can play in a wide area and cuts in.”
“He was playing as an out and out centre forward at Stuttgart and it was only under Julian Nagelsmann at Leipzig where he was put out wide in a game against Bayern Munich to try to counter Bayern’s wide players. He’s very quick and showed his ability and versatility from there.
“Chelsea have some really good young players but I don’t see a problem with him coming in. I thought he’d end up at Liverpool given the German connection, but it will be a case of who Chelsea look to play alongside him.
“There’s been more responsibility put on him this season and he’s responded. He has sometimes even played in a No 10 role which again has shown his versatility.”[the_ad id=”164″]
