Chelsea have completed the signing of RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner, subject to a medical.


The German put pen to paper on a five-year deal at Stamford Bridge and is now Chelsea's second signing of the summer after Hakim Ziyech from Dutch side Ajax.


The Blues have agreed to pay the Bundesliga club the €50m (£45m) that will trigger Werner‘s release clause, but the 24-year-old will stay with Leipzig until the end of the 2019-20 season.
