The future of Timo Werner has now been confirmed as the Blues have finally secured the signing of the RB Leipzig striker.

Werner has proven to be a top striker for Leipzig over the years, and has bagged 93 goals and 40 assists in 153 appearances for Leipzig in just four years, that made him one of the most sought-after forwards in Europe.

Chelsea beat the competition for Werner, and indeed the Blues strikers will face serious competition next season, with a top striker in place.

While Werner has scored 32 goals in all competitions for Red Bull Leipzig this season, Tammy Abraham has managed 15 goals to his credit so far.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has admitted that he has had this discussion with Abraham in the past, about facing stern competition at Chelsea.

“I have spoken to Tammy before about competition,” Lampard said in a press conference ahead of the clash with Aston Villa.

“I don’t have to address every player if another one comes in. It’s how it has been in the Abramovich era, but Tammy has been very good this season.

“We have had options and pleased with the idea of that.

“He has been fantastic this season. He has to sustain and improve because at Chelsea we have demands.

“I am happy to have options and competitions for places.”
