Frank Lampard has signed a top striker in Timo Werner, and the 24-year-old German can guarantee 30+ goals a season.
Werner has scored 32 goals in all competitions for Red Bull Leipzig this season, but the big question remains whether he can carry that same form to the Premier League.
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has admitted that it wasn’t easy convincing Werner to join Chelsea, due to the numerous suitors he had, but the Blues boss has admitted that the striker is excited about the project at Chelsea.
Lampard also believes that Werner has what it takes to do well in the Premier League.
The Chelsea manager said in his press conference on Friday: “We worked as hard as we could and I had conversations with Timo personally where he understands what I want to do here with the club, how we work and how we play.
“It seems like it came across as a really exciting project for him because he obviously had some very good options. We are happy for that and it was very joined up at our end how we went about it. We are just pleased that Timo has decided to come to us.
“He is the type of player and the type of profile we are looking at. Players that come here and have a big impact hopefully. We have to give him a bit of time to adapt. We know the Premier League is a slightly different animal to all other leagues in football. The talent I think Timo has and the work ethic and his personality and humility really shone through to me when speaking to him, so I am very excited to have him in all senses.”
