Chelsea need to strengthen their attack this winter.
British source claim that Chelsea are preparing move for RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner.
The 23-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
RB Leipzig spent 14 million euros to sign the Germany international from VfB Stuttgart in the summer of 2016. The 23-year-old has four years left on his current contract which expires in 2023.
Werner has scored 23 goals and assisted 10 more across all competitions this season.
He’s incredibly experienced for a 23-year-old and still has tons of room for growth.
His record for Germany is also impressive. Timo Werner has scored 11 goals in 29 matches for Germany at senior level.
Werner will be high in demand this winter, with him having enjoyed a sublime season for RB Leipzig this term.
Frank Lampard is looking to shore up his attacking options and RB Leipzig’s Timo Werner happens to be a target.
There is no doubt that Timo Werner will take Chelsea’s attack to a different level.
According to Tribalfootball, “Chelsea are lining up a bid for RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner. The Daily Express says Chelsea have him in their sights as they plot a £150m spend next month. Chelsea are relying on goals from Tammy Abraham with Olivier Giroud and Michy Batshuayi struggling. Abraham has 11 in 17 league games with Chelsea in fourth place in the league but manger Frank Lampard knows he needs other options with Olivier Giroud expected to depart. Interest in Werner also comes in part due to his relative low release clause of £27m. He signed a new deal at Leipzig in August which Kicker reported saw his clause cut to €30m. However with Leipzig flying high in Germany he may want to see the season out.”

Chelsea will have to come up with the right proposal to convince Timo Werner to join the club.
However, a move to Chelsea will be ideal for the 23-year-old at this point of his career.
Stylistically, he would be a great fit in Chelsea.
It will be a huge surprise if Chelsea signs Timo Werner in January. A summer move will be favorable for all the parties involved.
