Chelsea have confirmed the signing of Timo Werner from RB Leipzig, subject to the forward completing a medical.
The 24-year-old will arrive at Stamford Bridge in July after the club met the German’s release clause, reported to be around £53million.
Werner, who scored his 32nd goal of the season for Leipzig on Wednesday night, will stay in Germany until the end of the Bundesliga season.
Werner, who was reportedly attracting interest from Liverpool, said on Chelsea’s official website:
“I am delighted to be signing for Chelsea, it is a very proud moment for me to be joining this great club.
“I of course want to thank RB Leipzig, the club and the fans, for four fantastic years. You will forever be in my heart.”
