Frank Lampard says signing of Timo Werner will improve Chelsea.
The Blues this week pulled off a significant transfer coup by sealing a £53million deal for Germany hitman Werner to join the Stamford Bridge club this summer.
The RB Leipzig striker will follow Ajax’s Hakim Ziyech into the west London outfit, with boss Lampard still hunting yet more recruits.
Lampard revealed he has tracked Werner for some time. He admitted being left impressed by his phone conversations as Chelsea tied down a long-term deal for the coveted forward.
“So I’m very excited to have him in all senses. He’s clearly a player that we liked. I’ve certainly followed him for a long time myself, individually just as a talented player, even before I had this job.”
“But as a club, clearly we went for him, and he certainly will strengthen us in my opinion. He’s got huge talent, had a fantastic season this year but before that as well.”
