Chelsea will be ‘scary’ with Ziyech and ‘lightning’ Werner

Jermaine Jenas believes Chelsea will have a “scary” strikeforce if they complete a deal to sign Timo Werner.

The Germany striker, 24, looks set to move to Stamford Bridge from RB Leipzig.

He has scored 25 goals in the Bundesliga this season and 11 in 29 appearances for his country.

Boss Frank Lampard has made it clear he is keen to boost the club’s attacking options for next season.

And former England midfielder Jenas has no doubt big strides are being made by Chelsea, who have already signed Hakim Ziyech from Ajax.

Jenas told BBC Radio 5 Live’s Friday Football Social: “He is the perfect fit. Lamps isn’t messing about.

“This window you can see what he is trying to do: Ziyech on the right and cutting inside and Werner doing the same on the other side.”

‘Great business’ for Chelsea

Lampard’s options in attack have been limited at times this season and Chelsea have been overly reliant on the goals of Tammy Abraham.

But with new signings incoming and both Callum Hudson-Odoi and Christian Pulisic fully fit, the Blues could be a force to be reckoned with next term.

Jenas, whose playing career included a spell at QPR, added: “Werner is lightning. He is very quick, he has the finishing, the touches, the movement and is built for the Premier League. He is a top, top player.

“I think it is great business. £50m for a player like him, it sounds strange, but it is cheap. I think Chelsea is the right place for him.

“The Chelsea front line is looking scary.”
