Since the news broke that Chelsea football club has agreed to trigger the £53 million release clause of RB Leipzig forward Timo Werner, the world has been waiting for an official statement from the club concerning the progress of the much-talked-about deal.
Amid the anxiety in the hearts of the fans of the club who can not wait for the current second-highest goalscorer in Bundesliga to put pen to paper for Chelsea, a starlet of the club, Armando Broja, dropped a bombshell during an Instagram live chat.
Armando Broja said: “What do I think about Werner coming in? I think Werner is a really good player. He is really fast, strong, he can score a lot of goals.
“I’ve watched him a lot on YouTube, he is quite good. That is a good signing, I think.”
Since the 18-year-old forward who made his Premier League debut earlier this season, dropped the bombshell, the social media has been taken over by the #TimoTime hashtag. Fans believe that what the youngster said is nothing but the confirmation fans of the club have been waiting for.
The 24-year-old Timo Werner is seen by many pundits as the exact answer to the attacking challenges of Chelsea football club. Recall that Chelsea had to depend mostly on the services of Tammy Abraham throughout this season. From all indications, the manager of the club is trying by all means to give Chelsea the attacking bite that can rival any club in the Premier League, hence, the seriousness the club has demonstrated in trying to get Timo Werner to play for the club.
Initially, Liverpool was in contention for the signature of Timo but the club had to withdraw their interest because they felt it was not too necessary to splash so much money on Werner when they still have Mane, Salah and Firmino, mounting the frontline of the table-toppers.
Then, Chelsea who obviously needed the striker the most decided to trigger his release clause and offer him a contract which will see him earn close to £200,000-per-week. It is just a matter of time before the end of the whole transfer saga.
