Chelsea have triggered Timo Werner’s release clause, with the 24 year old striker reportedly agreeing personal terms with the Blues.
While former Chelsea and Liverpool defender Glen Johnson thinks the transfer is an astute bit of business by the Blues, he has also warned Werner about the challenges of playing in the Premier League.
“Although I haven’t seen too much of Timo Werner, the bits I have seen of him show he’s clearly a talented player,” he told betdaqtips.
“He’s got an eye for goal and is quick, both of which are attributes that are very useful in the Premier League.
“However, playing in England is a totally different kettle of fish to playing in Germany. Every game is tough and there aren’t any freebies which he’ll have to get used to, but he’s clearly a classy footballer and looks to have lots going for him.
“If he’s as good as people say he is then £50million looks like a very good deal for Chelsea.
“From Chelsea’s point of view, it’s good they are competing with the players that the top teams want.”
