Chelsea have been given a massive boost by German striker Timo Werner ahead of the summer transfer window

Olivier Giroud has been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons over the past few months as he has shown his unhappiness at not being first choice at Stamford Bridge, with Frank Lampard even admitting that he could have let the Frenchman leave the club in the winter window, if he keeps pushing for an exit.

And German striker Werner, is rated as one of the hottest prospects in Europe, with reports in the media all suggesting that he is seeking that big move to further develop his name in the game, with reports in the media suggesting that the Premier League is his next destination.

But Ahead of Leipzigs second-leg clash with Spurs, which they lead 1-0, Werner has opened up and handed Chelsea a boost by admitting that he is convinced about a move away from RB Leipzig, HE TOLD SKY SPORTS: “At this time in professional soccer there are two different variations. The first is to be part of a team like Liverpool or Manchester City. They have a good working team. The teams have also great coaches.

“But this is the question: do you want to go to that kind of team, because the situation is already that hard for each member and you want to be a part of it? That’s one point you have to look at.

“The other side are teams which need some big changes, because they just won a few big titles, but they are not able to compete on the highest level anymore. For me Manchester United is one of these teams.

“So at this point of my career I’m asking myself: do I want to be part of a new team, to build up something new, or do I want to stay at my team and make something great?”

Chelsea are in the same bracket as Manchester United, so Chelsea will have to fight hard to secure any transfer deal for this young man, but considering they are in need of a striker, he could be tempted, especially if they get back into the Champions League spots.
