Fabrizio Romano has claimed that Chelsea have come to terms on a deal with RB Leipzig over the sale of Timo Werner.

The German has been heavily linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge this summer, following a reported falling out with current manager Thomas Tuchel.

The 26-year-old has been the victim of a distinct lack of gametime since the former PSG manager took over, with him hardly getting a look in throughout last season.

With the signing of Raheem Sterling only making it more difficult for him to force his way into the side, the Germany international hinted that the upcoming World Cup could see him look to play his football elsewhere in the coming season.

After missing the club’s fixture with Everton at the weekend, Romano has claimed Chelsea and RB Leipzig have reached an agreement over a deal, with Werner expected to return to his former side tomorrow.

He said: “Timo Werner on permanent deal to RB Leipzig, here we go confirmed. Medical tests will take place this week, scheduled on Tuesday. 

“The clubs are preparing documents to be signed today – final details of the add ons structure discussed with Chelsea but deal is done.”

Werner always carried himself in a great regard at Stamford Bridge, however his lack of goals saw him struggle to establish himself as a guaranteed starter at all.

With Romelu Lukaku leaving this summer, there was an opportunity for him to establish himself in the centre striker role, with a run of games hopefully seeing him pick up some form that would see Chelsea fans finally see what they were promised from his move.

However, the move is likely to be best for the player, with him returning to the club who have drawn the best out of him in the past.
