Fans getting excited as Chelsea told they will be getting an Ian Rush-esque frontman in Werner
Chelsea will be getting an Ian Rush-esque frontman in the summer signing of Timo Werner, says Blues legend Alan Hudson.
After months and months of speculation, news broke over the weekend that we have agreed a deal with RB to bring Werner to the Premier League after activating that £54 million release clause, although the Germans have denied that report.
However, Hudson believes the talented 24-year-old will thrive as part of an exciting young squad, with the qualities he will add to the Chelsea fold making him comparable to an all-time great.
“I like the look of him,” Hudson told Caughtoffside of Werner.
“They are the two managers, Jurgen [Klopp] and Frank, that he would have suited perfectly as they both give you license to do what you do best, and we can see what he does best – exactly what Chelsea are lacking.
“He is so positive. He is sharp and you can see he’s hungry for goals and I like the way he makes his own chances whereas many strikers if they don’t get the service struggle.
“He ‘wins it back’, which reminds me of Ian Rush who dispossessed opponents if they dilly-dallied on the ball.
“I don’t think you need to be a good judge to know that this lad has all the ingredients to become a top scorer, and his composure will be a lesson for those at the Bridge who lack that.
“They have some useful players in and around the box, but, as Frank said regularly, they don’t compose themselves in great scoring situations.
“I think he’ll be a great signing – and players like him fit into any team that want to attack, and the only team outside of Chelsea and Liverpool would have been Leicester because their manager loves players like this.”
All we can say, is welcome mate![the_ad id=”164″]
