According to Daily Star, Chelsea fear Liverpool could beat the Blues to the signing of RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner.

The 23 year old German striker is expected to leave RB Leipzig this summer after four years at year in which he has scored 70 goals in 113 games.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is reportedly interested in signing Werner but the Blues look set to face fierce competition from Liverpool for the 23 year old striker.

Werner hinted this week that he was open to joining a Premier League club in the summer.

Werner said: “I can generally imagine playing abroad one day, although I don’t have any specific club where I want to be.

“I am open for everything. I was over in America for a holiday recently and English football was on all of the time.

“That’s an exclamation mark for the Premier League.

“But there are also big, famous clubs and it would certainly be fun playing there.”
