From July 1, Timo Werner will officially become a Chelsea player, after the Blues beat triggered his release from German side RB Leipzig.

The 24-year-old has been contracted to Chelsea for the next five years, and the RB Leipzig hitman is expected to reach great heights at Chelsea, after a dominant spell in the Bundesliga.

Werner helped secure a third-placed finish for his side as Leipzig ended the season with a 2-1 victory over Augsburg.

Werner scored a brace in the game, and his brace ensured he overtook Daniel Frahn to become RB Leipzig’s top scorer in the club’s history with 95 goals. Werner also equalled another Bundesliga record with his double as his record of 17 goals scored away from home this term is the same as Jupp Heynckes managed in the 1973-74 season.

Werner has ended the season with 28 Bundesliga goals. At the end of his career with Leipzig, Werner managed 95 goals and 40 assists in 159 games.

After playing his final game for Leipzig, Werner said: “I just wanted to have fun with my team-mates who I’ve spent the last four years here playing with and with success and get another win. And I think we did that very well.

“When I’m on my way home then there’ll be a lot of nostalgia.”
