Chelsea to sensationally blow Liverpool out of water in Timo Werner race

Share

Werner's deal would reportedly see him earn more than €10 million-a-year until 2025 and he currently has a £49 million release clause in his contract with Leipzig that only lasts until June 15th, which is why Chelsea have moved now.

Werner has been in sensational form for RB Leipzig in Germany this season, but the Bundesliga club will be powerless to resist his departure if his release clause is met.

It is unclear if Liverpool will make a move for Werner or keep the purse strings closed and allow a major target to join one of their Premier League rivals.

This story has been reproduced from the media.

Liverpool had targeted Werner, with Jürgen Klopp telling his board that the German worldwide would fit in well at Anfield.

The Reds have tracked the German worldwide for some months with Klopp a big fan of his compatriot, who has 31 goals across all competitions this season.

It is believed Chelsea scouted Werner against Spurs to check on how he might be able to adapt to the Premier League and cope against English opposition, and the 24-year-old clearly impressed.

Werner, who has banged in a remarkable 31 goals from 40 Leipzig matches this season, would then have a choice of which club to join.

Bild then published an article saying the player would "probably" be moving to Chelsea, and that RB Leipzig would be receiving Werner's buyout clause, which is just under €60m. He knows what he has in Leipzig and also what he has with me.

What Werner's move means for Abraham, the 22-year-old who now leads Lampard's line, remains to be seen though the German can play off the flanks.

"I show him that - he gets many chances to develop himself".

"In the end, it is his life, his career, he can decide that".
