Timo Werner is on the ground in London, ready to join up with his new Chelsea team-mates after his £53m west London move from RB Leipzig last month.
The German goal threat follows fellow summer signing Hakim Ziyech in travelling to London this month, set to take in his new surroundings as he beds in for his first Premier League season.
Timo Werner posted to Instagram with the caption ‘Landed in… Guess where?’ as he posed on an airport runway – expected to make his way to Stamford Bridge for the Blues’ final day clash with Wolves.
The in-demand forward will feel vindicated in his decision to join Frank Lampard’s men if they secure Champions League football next season, with the Blues needing either a win or a Leicester defeat to Manchester United for qualification.
The German star left RB Leipzig as their all-time top goalscorerafter a sensational season, seeing the Bundesligaside finish third thanks largely to their talisman’s 28 goals in 34 league games.
Frank Lampard will expect similar totals to help propel Chelsea back towards a title challenge next season after the Stamford Bridge hierarchy moved quickly to snap up Werner on a five-year deal worth £175,000 a week.
The Blues are building a formidable squad for next season, with Ziyech’s £37m move from Ajax looking set to be backed up by a £90m swoop for Bayer Leverkusen sensation Kai Havertz – taking the summer spending to over £170m.
