The news that Chelsea have triggered the release clause of Timo Werner has taken the media by storm, and everyone in the football has been talking about this recent development.

Chelsea legend Alan Hudson has been impressed with the club’s move to sign a quality player in Werner, and he has likened the quality of Werner to that of Liverpool legend Ian Rush.

“I like the look of him,” Hudson told CaughtOffside of Werner.

“They are the two managers, Jurgen [Klopp] and Frank, that he would have suited perfectly as they both give you license to do what you do best, and we can see what he does best – exactly what Chelsea are lacking.

“He is so positive. He is sharp and you can see he’s hungry for goals and I like the way he makes his own chances whereas many strikers if they don’t get the service struggle.

“He ‘wins it back’, which reminds me of Ian Rush who dispossessed opponents if they dilly-dallied on the ball.

“I don’t think you need to be a good judge to know that this lad has all the ingredients to become a top scorer, and his composure will be a lesson for those at the Bridge who lack that.

“They have some useful players in and around the box, but, as Frank said regularly, they don’t compose themselves in great scoring situations.

“I think he’ll be a great signing – and players like him fit into any team that want to attack, and the only team outside of Chelsea and Liverpool would have been Leicester because their manager loves players like this.”
