Southampton head coach Ralph Hasenhuttl has backed Timo Werner to be a big hit in the Premier League.

The 24 year old striker has agreed to join Chelsea and Hasenhuttl, his former boss at RB Leipzig, believes Werner will be a huge success at Chelsea.

He told Sport Bild: “Football is very intense and fast [in England]. That, in turn, suits Timo: with his speed he’s a brutal weapon in the right team.

“He sometimes needs a shoulder to lean on, or a little more encouragement but what I’ve always liked about him is that he scores goals that nobody else scores.

“Give him a bit of space and it’s hard to stop him. He has so many qualities that will always put him above others.”
