Cheap! Chelsea swoop for RB Leipzig striker Werner receives price boost

Chelsea's swoop for RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner has received a further cash boost.

Chelsea struck personal terms with Werner over a five-year contract this week and will pay his buyout clause in the coming days to seal the deal.

And Kicker reports that claims the clause is set at €60m are wide of the mark.

Instead, Chelsea will only have to pay €50m to sign the Germany international - or a cut-price £44m.

The 24 year-old will move to Chelsea this summer on a contract to 2025.
