Chelsea are only waiting to announce the signing of Timo Werner due to coronavirus travel rules, according to reports.

It was revealed last week that we are the ones that will be signing Timo Werner in the summer window after triggering the £50million release clause in the striker’s RB Leipzig contract.

It is believed that Werner has agreed a five-year contract with the club, with reports also suggesting that a £175,000-a-week contract has been agreed, making him one of the highest paid players at the club

But according to The Athletic’s Raphael Honigstein, any confirmation over that deal is being held up by coronavirus restrictions in England and Germany.

“Delay in the Werner deal is solely down to the practicalities of getting a medical done,” he tweeted.

“He can’t fly to the UK due to Bundesliga Covid-19 regulations and Chelsea doctors can’t fly to Germany because they would have to isolate for 14 days upon return.

“Chelsea could use the German FA’s doctor in the meantime but they’re more likely to wait until German season is over on June 27 or quarantine regulations in the UK change.”

Look, it is fair to say that some deals will get held up because of the coronavirus and that is what is happening here, but at the end of the day, it would be more of a shock to not see him make that move to London in the summer.

So even though the deal is not announced, we are expecting it very soon, and will be unhappy if we do not see it!
