RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner is close to completing his Chelsea transfer after the Blues triggered his £49 million release clause.

Liverpool legend Michael Owen has compared the Chelsea-bound striker with former Chelsea flop Fernando Torres.

“They’re great numbers aren’t they? And he’s not playing in a poor league,” Owen said on Premier League Productions and cited by the Daily Star.

“The Bundesliga is a very strong league and you would say that he can translate that.

“He does it at international level as well. I’ve been watching him quite closely since the restart and he’s already started scoring goals, he’s very quick, can cut in from wide, times his runs brilliantly and he’s very direct as well, straight at the goal, a bit like Torres.

“I don’t think he plays exactly the same but I always used to feel that Torres would take that first touch and then be motoring forward. I like him a lot.”
