Chelsea will be making a massive signing in Timo Werner, as the player can guarantee 30 plus goals a season.

In the Bundesliga season alone, Werner has bagged 25 league goals and set up eight more in 31 Bundesliga appearances.

Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann has admitted that once Werner’s move to Chelsea is complete, the hardest task will be to replace a top goalscorer of his calibre.

“The transfer is not fixed you, you have to emphasise that,” Nagelsman told Sport1. “I’m a coach with a realistic view and dreams. I’m aware that one or another highly talented player will leave us. It’s up to us, then, to find new players who can follow in such big footsteps.”

Nagelsmann also admitted that he has been impressed with their season so far.

“I’m satisfied with our performance, our aim was to reach the Champions League,” he said.

“It’s normal that we’d want to be champions sometimes. Every team in the Bundesliga should have this desire. But if we reach the Champions League, I’d be satisfied with this season in transition.

“We constantly score a lot of goals and have had the most stable defence for a long time. We’ve been moving in this direction for years.

“We want to take the club to the next level and achieve our goals. If we win enough titles, that’s up to me, the club and the team.”
