According to the Athletic (subscription required), Chelsea January transfer target Timo Werner has a release clause of at least £42.6m (€50m).
The Athletic added that the Blues are keen on adding a striker in the January transfer window to provide stricter competition for Tammy Abraham. Notwithstanding this, the report highlights that Timo Werner won’t leave RB Leipzig until the summer.
With the ace reportedly being one of the Blues’ top targets, is it worth Chelsea waiting until the end of the campaign or should they strengthen their forward line this month?
The 23-year-old striker has established himself as one of Europe’s top young forwards over the last couple of years.
The Germany international ace is only behind Robert Lewandowski in the Bundesliga’s scoring charts with 18 goals to his name so far this campaign.
Chelsea supporters shouldn’t be so sure of capturing Werner in the summer though, the latest report leaves the figure of Werner’s release clause as somewhat ambiguous – although money is never an issue with the Blues.
The RB Leipzig ace is undoubtedly one to keep an eye out for over the summer as he has the chance to be a crucial player for Germany in the European Championships.
The lightning-fast forward quick elevates to superstar levels after a successful season, he could become one of the hottest options on the market.
