So talented: Watch Official Video of Timo Werner first trained at Cobham training ground

Timo Werner has took part in his first training session as Chelsea player at Cobham’s headquarters on Monday morning.

The German striker, who has joined in a £53million deal from RB Leipzig, touched down in England over the weekend and was at Stamford Bridge on Sunday to watch his new club beat Wolverhampton Wanderers and secure Uefa Champions League football next season.

Werner, 24, did not train with his new team-mates with Frank Lampard giving his squad a well-deserved day off following Sunday’s victory over Wolves.

The 24-year-old was instead put through his paces alone at club’s training base with plenty of stretching and fitness work before focusing on ball work, dribbling and some finishing exercises.

Chelsea will not be able to register Werner until next campaign but the German star can now train with the club and is following the same training ground as fellow new addition Hakim Ziyech, who’s signed from Dutch club Ajax.

Securing Werner’s signature was seen as a big coup for Frank Lampard’s squad with the striker one of the most prolific scorers in Europe.

He netted 34 times for Leipzig in all competitions this term before deciding to skip their Champions League campaign to sign for the west London club in a bid to settle down quickly ahead of next campaign.

Werner appears to have adapted to his new surroundings and was spotted sharing a joke with Chelsea legend and the club’s current technical and performance adviser Petr Cech on Sunday evening.

Chelsea are hoping to follow up Werner’s signing with other big-money acquisitions this summer.

The striker’s compatriot Kai Havertz is high up on their list of targets.

And the club are reportedly trying to speed up negotiations with Bayer Leverkusen for the sought-after wonderkid after qualifying for next season’s Champions League.
