With Timo Werner Keen About Switch To Chelsea In July, 3 Systems Lampard Can Utilise Him In

Nikhil has been an avid Chelsea fan for as long as the concept of time has existed and rumours say that he even bleeds blue. Having lived in the UK for 3 years, Nikhil is said to have an excellent understanding of the atmosphere surrounding the English game. His role model is the greatest manager of all time - Jose Mourinho.

According to a recent twitter post by renowned journalist Christian Falk, RB Leipzig forward Timo Werner is said to be willing to waive off the Champions League matches that the Bundesliga side will face in August, in order to force a move to Chelsea during the month of July. The tweet states that the forward is keen on making the switch next month itself and that he’s willing to avoid participating in Die Roten Bullen’s Champions League knockout stage fixtures scheduled for a later date.

While the tweet claimed that Timo Werner is keen on moving to Chelsea in July, a further report by the Express has clarified that the Blues have already agreed a £180,000 deal with the forward. Lampard’s side are already said to have met his £53m release clause, with a five-year contract reportedly in the works. Although the German international will see out the rest of the Bundesliga season before departing, it is now suggested that he will miss all of Leipzig’s European commitments from here on in.

What Attributes Would Timo Werner Bring To Stamford Bridge? 

The German international forward is arguably one of the most versatile attackers in the European game at the moment, and could hence be supremely well-suited to Frank Lampard’s system at Chelsea. Players like Mason Mount and Ross Barkley have been used in multiple positions by Lampard this season, and the addition of a talismanic attacker like Werner would help take things to the next level at Stamford Bridge.

The Leipzig man is among the highest-rated young forwards in the world right now, and his sensational finishing and dribbling abilities are both good advocates of that claim.

As A Winger 

The wide areas have been one of the few weak links in the Chelsea side, and it’s not surprising that they’ve been looking at various attacking options to fill the void. Although Werner is a striker by position, he’s often utilised in the wide areas by his current employers, and generally tends to be just as effective.

The speedster’s blinding pace and work-rate, added to his ability to take on a defender and beat him, would make him an excellent option to deploy in one of the wide positions in the squad. With the futures of Willian and Pedro up in the air, this could prove to be a real possibility for next season.

As A Lone Striker 

The German has also been utilised as a lone centre-forward by both Germany and Leipzig throughout the campaign. The attacker has produced some of his best displays of the season as the central striker, and it wouldn’t be too far-fetched to see him taking over as number one from Tammy Abraham next season. The 24-year-old offers a very different skill-set to that of Abraham, but what he lacks in the physical aspect of the game, he more than makes up for with pure technical skill and composure.

As The Part Of A Front Two 

Although this is the unlikeliest scenario of the lot, the Blues could benefit massively by playing Werner and Abraham as a front-two next season. The Englishman would be able to win the aerial balls and bring the German into the game, while the Leipzig man’s unselfish nature could also help bring the best out of last season’s Aston Villa loanee.

Whether or not Lampard will be willing to commit another body entirely towards attack remains to be seen. Still, one thing that can be said with confidence is that Werner and Abraham could produce wonders at Stamford Bridge if deployed together.
