Chelsea in talks to sign striker Werner

Chelsea have held talks over a potential deal to sign RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner.

The 24-year-old Germany international has scored 11 goals in 29 games for his country.

He would be Chelsea’s second signing for next season, with winger Hakim Ziyech having been signed from Ajax in February.

Blues boss Frank Lampard has made it clear he wants to add to his attacking options, having been unable to in January despite a transfer ban being lifted.
