Timo Werner is potentially the most exciting striker that isn’t in the Premier League as of now, and Chelsea are looming around his signatures to try out bringing him to England.
With transfer ban past them, Frank Lampard will be looking to bolster his side with potential incomings expected in January. Jadon Sancho is among the long list of players linked with Chelsea and among that list is Werner as well.
There have been reports of a release clause in Timo Werner’s contract with Red Bull Leipzig which is quoted as low as £26.5 million and not higher than £51 million. Chelsea has asked for clarification over the reports and their possibilities over luring the German international to Stamford Bridge.
Leipzig, as expected, are determined keep hold of Timo, who has netted eighteen goals in seventeen League bouts this campaign alongside six assists.
Leipzig are at the top of Bundesliga’ table this New Year’s eve and they will certainly be reluctant to part company with their most priced asset in middle of the season when they have a clear chance to claim German Premiership.
Lyon ace Moussa Dembele, Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho, Crystal Palace’s starman Wilfried Zaha, Bayer Leverkusen’s starlet Leon Bailey and Samuel Chukwueze are other potential players linked with a move to Chelsea this winter.
