RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner is set to join Chelsea this summer after reportedly agreeing a five year deal with the Blues.

Werner is a product of the Stuttgart academy and Marc Kienle, a former youth coach at Stuttgart, has not forgotten what Werner did to him as a 12 year old in the Stuttgart academy.

“He stepped up… and thumped the ball straight into my face,” Kienle told The Athletic.

“I didn’t want to show how much it hurt but came away thinking, ‘Man, that kid has some shot on him’.”

Chelsea fans will get the chance to see the shot power Werner has got in him next season.
