Chelsea beat Liverpool and Bayern Munich to get Timo Werner’s signature last summer when the player decided not to wait until 2021 to leave RB Leipzig.

Both Liverpool and Bayern wanted Werner to hold off until this summer to move clubs, when his release clause at Leipzig would have been around Β£35m.

However Werner did not want to wait and was happy to accept the move toChelsea, who agreed to pay a higher release sum at the time.

However, things did not go according to plan individually for Werner last season, as just six league goals followed under Frank Lampard and Thomas Tuchel.
