Former Chelsea striker Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has hailed new Blues striker Timo Werner. Werner signed for Chelsea from RB Leipzig, as Frank Lampard got a new striker capable of scoring 20+ goals a season.
Hasselbaink has hailed the qualities of Werner as he admitted that he’s excited about the new Chelsea striker. His calmness in front of goal as well as his killer instincts are two things that have pleased the Blues legend.
“Werner is so calm in front of goal,” Hasselbaink says. “He has ice in his veins. He has so many of the natural qualities that you can’t teach a striker, like that calm, killer instinct.
“He is a very, very good buy. Werner gives Chelsea an extra edge in front of goal now. I’m excited to see him play.
“Werner has an ability to change games when they’re tight, scoring the important goals. That’s what any team needs; it’s what Chelsea need. He has proven his quality in the Bundesliga and now he is here in the Premier League to do the same.
“He’s an exciting talent and I rate him very highly.”
