Timo Werner missed the chance against Hoffenheim
According to the press in the UK, on June 16 Chelsea may complete the transfer of striker Timo Werner of Leipzig in the Bundesliga (Germany). This will be Chelsea’s second notable transfer for the 2020/21 season after Hakim Ziyech bought from Ajax.

The London Evening Standard newspaper said the reason for the deal is expected to be completed today because Werner has terms of liquidation of a contract worth £ 53 million, and this clause will expire in less than a day. Chelsea will have to pay immediately to buy, if they spend 53 million pounds, they are entitled to welcome Werner without negotiating directly with Leipzig, but otherwise, Leipzig will have the right to ask for a different price.
Since the beginning of June, Chelsea fans have been eager to hear that Chelsea have begun to recruit Werner, the German striker has long been considered to join Liverpool instead of “The Blues”. The media revealed that Werner was not only closely followed by Chelsea, coach Frank Lampard and technical advisor Petr Cech personally went to Germany to meet Werner from February.
The transfer process was not fast because the Covid-19 epidemic caused limited movement between European countries. Werner could not go to England for a medical examination, nor could Chelsea’s people go to Germany to do so, and Chelsea is said to have hired a private medical team to do so.

Werner, who has scored 25 goals in 30 matches in the Bundesliga this season, is expected to sign a 5-year contract with a salary of £ 200,000 / week. He and Ziyech are expected to play alongside Tammy Abraham as the mainstay of the Chelsea attack from next season, but Chelsea is also planning to add left-back Ben Chilwell to the club.
Buying Chilwell from Leicester City is said to be quite expensive because Chilwell is a local player and that automatically makes the price much higher if another Premier League club asks to buy. Chelsea must want to spend money for the Chilwell case, so he will not want to negotiate with Leipzig to negotiate the price of Werner, so the case of Werner will be completed by “The Blues” immediately for £ 53 million.
