The Blues have activated the โ‚ฌ60 million release clause for the 24-year-old, who will join up with his new teammates after the season in the Bundesliga has finished. Werner has now agreed personal terms with Chelsea and will undergo a medical in July.

“I am delighted to be signing for Chelsea, it is a very proud moment for me to be joining this great club”, Werner told the official Chelsea website. “I of course want to thank RB Leipzig, the club and the fans, for four fantastic years. You will forever be in my heart. I look forward to next season with my new team-mates, my new manager and of course the Chelsea fans. Together we have a very successful future ahead of us.”

He is a player who was coveted all over Europe and it is no surprise, he has that rare mix of being young and exciting and yet established and proven. We canโ€™t wait to have Timo on board, but until then we wish him and RB Leipzig all the best for the rest of this season.”
