CHELSEA have confirmed the signing of prolific RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner, subject to a medical.

The German, who was also linked with Liverpool, will move next month after the Stamford Bridge club met a £53million release clause.

Werner, 24, wrote on Twitter: ‘I’m incredibly happy to be joining the Blues next season! It feels like the right step for me and I am delighted to become a part of Chelsea FC.

‘Really looking forward to playing for such a fantastic and historic club!’

Werner, who scored his 32nd goal of the season for Leipzig in midweek, will complete the Bundesliga season but not represent the Champions League quarter-finalists in the planned eight-team final stages in Lisbon in August.
