Incoming signing Timo Werner opens up and admits Chelsea ‘have made him feel at home’ ahead of transfer move

Incoming striker Timo Werner says Chelsea have made him feel at home even before he officially leave RB Leipzig.

Werner is heading to Chelsea after completing his final game for the club, with the German becoming the clubs all-time leading goal-scorer with two fine goals in his last appearance.

He is expected to challenge Tammy Abraham for that number one spot at Chelsea next season, but ahead of his move to Stamford Bridge, he has opened up and admitted that Chelsea have already made him feel comfortable.

The Germany ace told Sky Sports: “The discussions with the board at Chelsea were so good that I ultimately chose them.

“Frank Lampard in particular stood behind me and really wanted me to know that if I went to Chelsea, I could feel just as comfortable as I do with Leipzig.

“In the conversations with me, the coach often emphasised how much he wanted me, how much he valued me as a person.

Of course it’s hard to give up an oasis of well-being like the one I’ve had in Leipzig for years, but you can only get ahead in a career if you take the next step.

“This season was the crossroads, otherwise I would always have stayed with Leipzig.”

Werner is a great bit of business by the Chelsea and they have done very well to make sure that he will be a Blue next season,. So now he needs to find himself a nice new place, get settled in his new surroudings and then get ready for the biggest test of his life as the Premier League is no joke

In the Bundesliga he could afford to take his foot off the gas a little, but in the English game,he will not have that opportunity and will need to be at his best every week.
