Chelsea and Liverpool were the two clubs that were strongly linked with Timo Werner, but it was the Blues who eventually won the race for the 24-year-old.

Werner has now revealed that he is happy in London as he’s getting accustomed to his new environment.

“Very good,” Werner said. “I know the way from my home to the training ground now, so that’s good!

“That’s important, knowing your way around your new surroundings and we have also trained at the stadium so now I know my way to Stamford Bridge also.

“My apartment is very nice, I feel happy there and also the city of London is brilliant. For me, London is one of the best cities in the world so I’m really happy. When you take a few days away, the weather was also very good! Yes, I’m very happy and settling in well.”

Meanwhile, former Chelsea striker Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has asked for patience with Timo Werner and thinks the new striker would struggle to have an instant impact at Chelsea.

“German football is totally different to the English game so it will be difficult for Werner to settle straight in,” former Blue Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink told GentingBet.

“We know he’s a talented player. We know what he can do. And Chelsea need a player that can score goals.

“But, we also need to give him the time. If you look at Aubameyang when he came, he needed six months. So, give him those six months as well.”
