Former Chelsea boss Glenn Hoddle has named Timo Werner as Chelsea’s best signing of last summer ahead of the likes of Edouard Mendy and Hakim Ziyech.
The Blues spent over £200million during the summer transfer window to sign Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech, Ben Chilwell, Kai Havertz and Edouard Mendy. Thiago Silva also arrived as a free agent following the expiration of his Paris Saint-Germain contract.
Hoddle told Standard Sport: “It is a tough one. Edouard Mendy could be very important, but by the end of the season I think we will look back and think Timo Werner will be the one.
“He can play down the middle, he can play left and he could have had three or four goals against Leeds on Saturday.
“Hakim Ziyech is a very good player. There will be games where he will be outstanding and I think spells maybe where we will not see him.
“Kai Havertz has got to show more. There is more to come from him, do not get me wrong, he is a very good player.
“But I would go for Werner, I think we will look back and think he was a very good buy.”
