Timo Werner Sends Video Message To Fans After Completing £47.5 Million Transfer
Werner, who is set to pocket £180,000-a-week at Stamford Bridge after the club agreed a £47.5 million fee, has been in scintillating form this season, scoring 25 goals in 29 Bundesliga games and four times in eight Champions League outings.
It's certainly a huge and exciting capture for Frank Lampard's side and just minutes after Chelsea revealed their latest signing, the 24-year-old sent a video message of his own to fans.
"To everyone at Chelsea, I'm incredibly happy to be joining the Blues next season." he wrote on Twitter alongside his video message.
"It feels like the right step for me and I am delighted to become a part of Chelsea. Really looking forward to playing for such a fantastic and historic club. See you soon Chelsea fans!"

Following the impressive addition of Dutch winger Hakim Ziyech from Ajax in a £33 million deal, the Premier League outfit will look stronger than ever next season.

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.
Chelsea will pay €50M to RB Leipzig as final fee for Timo Werner and are also working to sign a left back. Ben Chilwell is always their first target - not easy but talks still on with Leicester. :large_blue_circle: #CFC #Werner #transfers- Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) June 18, 2020
