The Blues have sealed the signing of Hakim Ziyech from Ajax for £33million and also appear set to snap up highly-coveted RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner.

According to legendary Premier League striker Alan Shearer, both players expect Chelsea to finish in the top four as they expect to play Champions League football next season.

Shearer wrote in The Sun: “Signing Timo Werner is a huge statement from Chelsea – but it would be a kick in the teeth not to make the top four now.

“Along with Hakim Ziyech, they have got two big-hitters through the door before the transfer window has opened.

“I am certain there will be more to come, too, with Ben Chilwell also on their radar.

“But these players will all be expecting to play in the Champions League next season, so it’s imperative they get the job done.

“With a three-point cushion in fourth it would be a real anti-climax if they didn’t, considering the talent on the way in.”
