Newest Chelsea signing Timo Werner has been snapped during his first group training session with the rest of the first team.
The German is Frank Lampard’s second signing of the summer and has finally joined fellow new recruit Hakim Ziyech at Cobham. Werner makes his move to the west London outfit after spending his entire career in the Bundesliga. Undoubtedly, the Premier League should be an exciting challenge for both Werner to take on and fans to watch.
Will Timo Werner be Chelsea's top scorer next season?
The official Chelsea Instagram account has posted two photos of the 24-year-old in action on the training pitch. Many fans can hardly contain their excitement and have flooded the comments with positive messages for their new striker.
Werner agreed terms with Chelsea after months of speculation linking him to a move to rivals Liverpool. In a shock twist, he put pen to paper for the Blues in a £47.5m transfer to the capital (via Goal.com).
After an impressive end to the season by Olivier Giroud, and Tammy Abraham also netting 15 Premier League goals, the fight for a spot in the starting lineup will be fierce. Werner looks set to be the centre of attention after his blistering 2019/20 campaign with RB Leipzig in which he scored 28 goals in the Bundesliga to see him finish only behind top scorer Robert Lewandowski for the season (via BBC Sport).
Some fans have also expressed their excitement to see Werner link up with in-form winger Christian Pulisic. The former Bundesliga men could create a stunning partnership up front for Chelsea in attack next season.
It’s unlikely that the 24-year-old will be the Blues’ last signing of the summer, as they continue to circle for further high-profile names to bolster their squad.
