Less than two months that Romelu Lukaku returned to his former club; Inter Milan, another Chelsea striker, Timo Werner has completed a permanent transfer to RB Leipzig, returning to Germany after two seasons with Chelsea.
The forward is heading back to the club where he enjoyed four successful years before moving to west London, departing Stamford Bridge for his homeland as a European and world champion.
The Champions League triumph in Porto represents the highlight of his time with the Blues and he played his part in our success during his first season in England. Nobody matched his tallies of 12 goals or 15 assists in all competitions, while only Mason Mount made more appearances for Chelsea in 2020/21.
Werner’s first goal for the club arrived in his fourth game – a sharp turn and finish against London rivals Tottenham – starting a run of eight goals in nine games, including four across two big Champions League wins over Krasnodar and Rennes.
Werner thanked Chelsea fans and board for their supports while Leipzig were glad to have their former striker back.
