Werner is now one of the most feared young strikers in Europe known for his pace, movement, link-up play and finishing ability. He has scored 32 goals and registered 13 assists in 43 appearances in all competitions this season.
Chelsea FC director Marina Granovskaia added: ‘We are very excited that Timo Werner has chosen to join Chelsea. He is a player who was coveted all over Europe and it is no surprise, he has that rare mix of being young and exciting and yet established and proven. We can’t wait to have Timo on board, but until then we wish him and RB Leipzig all the best for the rest of this season.’
The 24 year old German international has agreed a five-year deal at Stamford Bridge and becomes Chelsea’s second signing of the summer. Chelsea has agreed to pay €50m (£45m) to trigger the release clause of Werner, who is set to earn more than €10m (£9m) per season in England.
