Timo Werner to receive £10m signing-on fee at Chelsea.

German forward Timo Werner will reportedly receive a £10m signing-on fee at Chelsea when he officially joins the Premier League giants next month.

The 24-year-old, who has scored 32 times in 44 appearances for Leipzig this season, was strongly linked with Liverpool before agreeing a move to Stamford Bridge.

Werner will not finish the 2019-20 campaign with his German club despite the fact that they are in the Champions League, meaning that a move to Chelsea will be completed in July.

According to Bild, the Germany international is set to receive a £10m signing-on fee, in addition to wages of £270,000-a-week, making him one of the club’s highest earners.

Werner has netted 93 goals in 158 appearances for Leipzig in all competitions, including an impressive return of 76 strikes in 126 Bundesliga outings.

Chelsea have also already secured a deal for Morocco international Hakim Ziyech ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.
