RB Leipzig Agree Deal To Re-sign Chelsea’s Timo Werner

RB Leipzig have agreed a deal to re-sign forward Timo Werner from Chelsea, according to Sky in Germany.

According to Sky in Germany, a fee of £25.3m (€30m) plus bonuses has been agreed.

Talks between the two clubs moved quickly and an agreement has now been reached for the permanent transfer of the Germany international.

Chelsea signed Werner two years ago from Leipzig, but he was been unable to replicate the goal-scoring form which prompted the Blues to activate his £45m release clause.

Werner only found the back of the net four times in the Premier League last season but still boasts a respectable record of 23 goals and 21 assists in 89 appearances for the Blues.

Nevertheless, the 26-year-old has been unable to impose himself on a consistent basis and allegedly told the Blues board that he wanted to leave earlier in the window.
