Werner returns to Leipzig

Timo Werner has re-joined RB Leipzig two years after leaving the Bundesliga side.

He was bought by Chelsea for £47.5 million in the summer of 2020 in the hopes that he could produce the same goal return as he had achieved at the German club.

But he struggled in the Premier League and became more renowned for his high profile misses rather than his ability to hit the target.

And now Chelsea have decided to cut their losses and he has been sold back for a fee of £25 million, almost half of what they paid for him in the first place.

From Werner’s perspective, the move offers him the chance to play regular football again, which is important if he wants to be part of Germany’s World Cup plans later this autumn.

Although they have signed Raheem Sterling, with Werner now gone and Romelu Lukaku out on loan, Chelsea may look to sign another striker before the close of the transfer window.
