Chelsea fans were left begging the club to complete a move for RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner amid a competition for the German between Premier League sides.
According to The Mirror, the Blues want to sign the player, who is rated at £60m. However, they are in direct competition with Liverpool for his signature. The Merseysiders were looking to make a move in the summer transfer window, but the west London side’s interest is said to have triggered ‘immediate’ movement.
One fan dubbed him as the ‘real deal’.
Buy buy buy!!! Werner is the real deal!

Werner has enjoyed a fine campaign in the German top-flight this campaign, scoring 20 goals in 18 league appearances as he sits joint-top of the goal-scoring charts (via BBC), totting up 25 strikes in all competitions. The player’s fine start to his fledgeling career has seen him already make 29 appearances for Germany as he appeared at the 2018 World Cup in Russia (via Transfermarkt). In comparison to Tammy Abraham, the ace averages more shots per game across league fixtures (via WhoScored).
Fans were left begging the club to finalise a deal for the prolific goalscorer as they took to Twitter to react to the report. Here is a selection of tweets from the Stamford Bridge faithful:
Chelsea had better spend on him 😩
