Chelsea star Timo Werner will prove to be the best signing of the summer, reckons Rio Ferdinand.

Regarded as one of the finest talents in the game right now, Werner has been linked to some of the biggest clubs over the past few seasons as his stock in the game continues to rise on a yearly basis.

But we that made the offer to get a deal done and then convinced the German to make the move to London, which has got many of the fans excited about the amount of goals he could bring to the side.

The German forward looked lively on his debut against Brighton and is set to shake off a knock to face Liverpool on Saturday night, and now Ferdinand has opened up and suggested that the young man could turn out to be the best signing of the summer.

“I’m going to go for Werner,” said former Man United and England star Ferdinand on the TalkSport website

“He looked sharp against Brighton and I saw him against Spain the other day – he tore them one.”

Ferdinand is also excited to see Hakim Ziyech – another new arrival – after speaking with his manager Frank Lampard about his talents.

He said: “You know what, I spoke to Frank the other day about Ziyech and he said: ‘His passing is ridiculous’.

“I’m looking to see them passes when he cuts with his left foot and has the likes of Mason Mount, Timo Werner, Kai Havertz, etc all making runs – and I think Ziyech will be putting it on a plate for these boys.”
