Timo Werner says his decision to move to Chelsea was mainly due to the style of play and personality of Frank Lampard.
Werner watched on as Chelsea beat Wolves to secure Champions League football for next season before beginning training with his new teammates on Tuesday, July 28, 2020.
The former RB Leipzig striker was heavily linked with a move to Liverpool before making the choice to sign for the West London club and he has credited Lampard for convincing him to join the club.
“He was the main point,” Werner said in an interview with Chelsea TV.
“We talked a lot about things like system, like how he wants to play and sees me playing, and how the system fits to me.”
“He is a really nice guy who not only told me what he wants from me as a player because he wants to help me as a guy.”
“He knows me now a little bit better and it fits very good between us and now I am happy to be here,” he added.
Werner ended his time at Leipzig as the club’s record goalscorer, scoring 34 goals in 45 games in 2019-20 season, and will be looking to continue that form at his new club.
