Chelsea new signing Timo Werner has revealed why Chelsea paid his release clause at RB Leipzig to bring him to Stamford Bridge.

According to Werner, the big reason why Chelsea signed him from RB Leipzig is to score goals. This could mean the German international will be the key striker for Chelsea next season, with Tammy Abraham dropping to the bench.

“I’ll try to score as much goals as I can for Chelsea, that is the big reason why they bought me, to bring the goals I scored in Leipzig here, and maybe score more goals than there,” Werner told Chelsea’s official website.

Werner also revealed the style of the English Premier League suits him.

“The style of the Premier League is very fast and my speciality is that I am really fast so I think it is perfect for me to play here,” he added.

“It is another league in another country so I can improve myself to bring it to another level, so those are the reasons I come to the Premier League and to Chelsea.”
