Chelsea agree £46.5m Timo Werner transfer

Chelsea have reached an agreement with RB Leipzig to sign Timo Werner, as well as agreeing personal terms with the Blues, with a transfer fee rumoured to be in the region of £46.5 million.


The 24-year-old will join Chelsea in July, once the Bundesliga season ends and he completes a medical with the club.


Speaking on the transfer, Werner said that he is "delighted to be signing for Chelsea" as it is a "very proud moment" for him to be "joining this great club".


He also thanked RB Leipzig "for four fantastic years" and that they "forever be in my heart".


This brings to an end a transfer dilemma that has been present for the whole season, with Werner publicly refusing to join Liverpool, who had shown plenty of interest in him, with the other interested clubs being Bayern Munich and Manchester United.


Werner has enjoyed his best season to date this season, scoring 32 ggoals and providing 13 assists in 43 games in all competitions so far for RB Leipzig. The German is Chelsea's second signing after the transfer ban, with them signing Hakim Ziyech earlier on in the season.
