In a coup for Frank Lampard, Germany striker, whose buyout clause is £53m and interested Liverpool, has decided to move to Stamford Bridge
Timo Werner has agreed to join Chelsea, who are on the verge of tying up a deal to sign the forward from Red Bull Leipzig.
Werner has now agreed to join Chelsea on a contract worth almost £200,000-a-week and the club are now expected to agree a deal with Leipzig.
The signing will be a significant coup for Chelsea and head coach, Frank Lampard, as Werner had been tracked by Premier League leaders Liverpool and their manager Jürgen Klopp.
It remains to be seen whether or not Liverpool make any move to try to hijack Chelsea’s bid, but Stamford Bridge insiders are confident of the deal going through.
