Timo Werner has insisted he made the ‘hard decision’ to join Chelsea in order to win top titles this summer window.
Werner is easily one of the hottest young strikers in the game right now and his performances over the last 12 months led to speculation that the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City were ready to swoop in and try to get a transfer deal done..
However, we managed to sign the young man up for a bargain £43 million transfer deal, and Werner has revealed Frank Lampard sold him to the club on his Stamford Bridge vision.
“I’ve come here to win titles, Chelsea is a big club and a club that always wants to win,” said Werner on the club website.
“For me I always want to win every game. So it’s clear we want to win titles. Now we have a very strong team and a young team that can develop, and can go through a period of a long time where we can stay together, because we are young and we want to win.
“And that’s a good way for what I want to reach here. Because I am here to win titles and win a lot of games, as many games as possible.
“I wanted to come to the Premier League because it’s the world’s best league, and for me it’s the best feeling to play in front of Premier League fans. When we played at Tottenham with Leipzig it was crazy, really crazy to play there in front of the people.
“So I wanted to have the feeling to play in the Premier League, to play for such a big club like Chelsea. And that’s why I came here.
“When I decided to leave Leipzig I talked to different clubs, of course, next to Chelsea, there were some other clubs that I talked to. But for me I don’t want to talk about so much about other clubs, because in the end I decided for Chelsea.
“Of course there were some other clubs also, like Liverpool – who have a great team, and also maybe I can fit good to some other teams. But at the end I decided to join Chelsea because for me it was the best decision I can take. Not only because of the style of football but also because of what they have shown to me.
“I think it was a hard decision in the end but I am very, very excited and proud that I decided like this because now when I have been here for at least one and a half months, it feels right.
“It feels good. The team is brilliant. We have some very good, but always calm and nice players. It is fun to player here at Chelsea and to be part of the team. We can do very well with this team in the next few months and the next few years.”
All we can say is thank you Frank!
