Timo Werner returns to Stamford Bridge to watch Chelsea vs Spurs after RB Leipzig transfer

Former Chelsea striker Timo Werner was pictured at Stamford Bridge to watch his former teammates face Tottenham Hotspur.

The German departed earlier this month, returning to RB Leipzig on a permanent transfer to end his spell at Chelsea.

During his time at the club, Werner lifted the UEFA Champions League, scoring a vital goal in the semi-final against Real Madrid.

With the signing of Raheem Sterling, Werner would most likely have struggled for game time this season, and ahead of the 2022 World Cup at the end of the year, he decided to depart and return to the Bundesliga.


Werner netted on his debut back in Germany, picking the ball up from 30 yards out and unleashing a shot, which was spilled in for a goal on his return.

Chelsea faced Tottenham Hotspur in their first match without Werner, facing Antonio Conte’s side in a controversial London derby.

The points were shared after Kalidou Koulibaly put the Blues ahead, before Reece James thought he netted a winner, which was cancelled out by a late Harry Kane equaliser.

It has now been revealed that Werner was in attendance for the match.

The German was pictured sitting and watching on as his former teammates battled it out in the London derby.

According to journalist Carrie Brown, Werner tried to ‘casually’ walk to his car after the match but was ‘chased and cheered’ by Chelsea fans.

The forward was also pictured after the match in conversation with Trevoh Chalobah as he is most likely back in England to say his goodbye’s to his former teammates before returning to Leipzig.

It remains to be seen as to whether Chelsea will replace Werner in the transfer window, with Callum Hudson-Odoi and Hakim Ziyech also linked with moves away from Stamford Bridge this summer.

Everton winger Anthony Gordon has been heavily linked with a move to Chelsea in recent days, with it believed that Thomas Tuchel’s side have already seen a £40 million bid rejected.

Despite being a natural winger, it is believed that Gordon could be utilised at wing-back for Chelsea if they are to sign him this summer.

Therefore, the Blues could still enter the market for another forward.

Former Arsenal skipper Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is believed to be at the top of the list for Tuchel, who previously coached him at Borussia Dortmund.

It remains to be seen as to whether a bid will be submitted for the Barcelona striker in the coming weeks.
