Chelsea have since completed the deal to bring Timo Werner to Stamford Bridge.
The German international will wear the Chelsea colours next season, and he’s expected to bang in the goals, after scoring 28 goals in the league and 32 in all competitions.
Red Bull Salzburg coach Jesse Marsch has hailed Chelsea’s deal to sign Werner, and lists the striker’s qualities as aggressive, a great scorer and an intelligent footballer.
“Timo is an incredible talent and an aggressive attacker and a great scorer and an intelligent footballer,” Marsch told Goal about the former Leipzig striker. “Chelsea, for a relatively cheap price, have picked up a world-class player.
“I am really excited for Timo because a lot of Germans don’t leave. I am really excited that Timo is moving outside of his comfort zone to challenge himself at a different level and I think that he will be rewarded for it in his career.
“He is a cut-throat attacker and the potential for him and Christian to be a good pair is really, really high.”
Speaking about Kai Havertz, who’s set to join Chelsea, Marsh admitted that Havertz has what it takes to excel outside of his comfort zone.
He said: “Havertz is another player that I think needs to get out of his comfort zone and he has major potential.
“What I learned about Germans is that they don’t like being out of their comfort zone; they like defining things, having rules and being uncomfortable is not always the best thing.
“I really think the more talents that challenge themselves in a different culture will be rewarded for it.”
