Werner, who is set to pocket £180,000-a-week at Stamford Bridge after the club met his £53 million release clause, has been in scintillating form for Leipzig this season, scoring 25 goals in 29 Bundesliga games, while netting four times in eight Champions League games.
An impressive haul for one of the hottest prospects in world football.

The German striker was heavily linked with a move to Premier League leaders Liverpool for a number of months but it appears Frank Lampard is about to strengthen his side further following the impressive addition of Dutch winger Hakim Ziyech from Ajax in a £33 million deal.
Chelsea's recent moves in the transfer market will likely not stop there, either.
Leicester City full-back Ben Chilwell is believed to be 'tempted' over a big-money move to Stamford Bridge this summer, according to The Mirror, with Frank Lampard keen on making the England international the club's first choice left-back.
It is reported that Chilwell has not told The Foxes that he wants to leave yet, with Brendan Rodgers' side hoping to get a hefty £85 million fee for the defender, but a deal is hopeful.

Nicolás Tagliafico is on Chelsea list as an option if Chilwell deal will collapse.

Those three additions would certainly strengthen what is already a solid side likely to achieve Champions League football next season, but how would they potentially line-up later this year?
There will be serious competition for places, that's for sure.
Here are three potential Chelsea line-ups for 2020/21:
