Werner transfer set to be confirmed

The transfer of Timo Werner from RB Leipzig to Chelsea will be confirmed in the next few days.

The deadline for the payment of his release clause of £53 million expired at midnight on Monday, and, after some haggling over the structure of his payment, and also concerns about his medical would be conducted given prevailing international travel restrictions, the last remaining details are being ironed out.

Werner has agreed a five year deal worth £180,000 a week with the West London club, although he will not formally be able to join them until next season.

He has been in excellent form for the German side, scoring 25 goals in 30 Bundesliga appearances for them so far this season. Capturing Werner is regarded as a major coup for Chelsea, who fought off competition from the likes of Liverpool, Manchester United and Bayern Munich for the signature of the 25 year old German international.
