Chelsea beat Liverpool to the £47million signing of Timo Werner this summer and the German has broken his silence on why he opted for a move to Stamford Bridge over Anfield.
“Yes, I think when I decided to leave Leipzig I talked to different clubs and next to Chelsea I spoke to other clubs,” Werner said at his press conference.
“For me, I don’t want to talk too much about other clubs.
“Of course, there are some other clubs like Liverpool have a great team. Maybe I could fit in other teams but, in the end, I decided Chelsea because it was the best decisions I could take. Not only the style of football but because of what they shown to me.
“Yes, it was a hard decision in the end but I am very excited, proud and happy I decided this. Now I am here for maybe two months, it feels right, good and the team is brilliant. We have some very good but calm and nice players.
“It is fun to play at Chelsea, be part of the team and be part of what we start here. We can do very well with this team in the next few months and years.”
