Chelsea have completed the signing of RB Leipzig forward Timo Werner for £47.5million.
三级成人视频Werner will join the Blues on a five-year contract worth just over £170,000-a-week and will move to England at the end of the Bundesliga season.
The 24-year-old becomes Chelsea’s second signing ahead of next campaign after Hakim Ziyech, with the club also chasing Bayer Leverkusen winger Kai Havertz and Leicester City left-back Ben Chilwell.

“I of course want to thank RB Leipzig, the club and the fans, for four fantastic years. You will forever be in my heart.
“I look forward to next season with my new team-mates, my new manager and of course the Chelsea fans. Together we have a very successful future ahead of us.”
Werner was convinced to join Chelsea by head coach Frank Lampard after he and technical and performance advisor Petr Cech made a pre-lockdown trip to speak with the player, his agent and his family.
三级成人视频Werner has informed Leipzig that he does not want to play in the delayed Champions League for them in August so that he can move to Chelsea as soon as possible and be ready for next season.
Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia, who pushed the transfer through after Lampard and Cech’s talks with Werner, said: “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.”
