Chelsea have been linked with a move for RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner, albeit Liverpool seem to be leading the race to sign the German.

Meanwhile, Chelsea defender Ethan Ampadu who’s currently on loan with Leipzig has given a very impressive scouting report on his teammate as he acknowledged that Werner is an all round striker.

Ampadu told The Athletic: “I’d heard a lot about him before I came over. He was in the media in England because of his goals, his pace, his ruthlessness. Over here, I’ve seen that.

“He scores all kinds of goals, he gets in behind, he can run at players with his pace, he’s an exciting player.

“He’s a good bloke. Fairly quiet. I think that’s something here, they’re all fairly quiet, get on with things — although maybe that’s my language barrier and I’ve missed all that.”

Despite having only made 7 appearances for Leipzig since joining them, Ampadu has admitted that he doesn’t regret the move as he has improved his game and learnt a lot from his loan spell.
