Former Chelsea winger Joe Cole has backed incoming summer signing Timo Werner to be a perfect fit for Frank Lampard’s Chelsea.

According to Cole, Werner is perfect for Lampard’s Chelsea due to his ability to play off the shoulder of defenders, his perpetual movement and his good finishing.

“A great player,” he says. “I’ve been watching him closely and he’s got great movement.

“He fits into the ethos of Frank’s side. A bit of Jamie Vardy about him, in the sense he plays off the shoulder, he’s got perpetual movement, he runs.

“Maybe Antoine Griezmann, a little bit of that. He’s a nine in the sense he’s always threatening in behind and he keeps moving, and he’s a very good finisher.”
