​Chelsea striker Werner on verge of RB Leipzig return

Chelsea forward Timo Werner is close to signing for RB Leipzig.

Werner, who arrived at Chelsea from Leipzig for £47.5 million two years ago, has failed in the Premier League.

According to the Daily Mail, Werner is set to seal a return to his old club this summer.

The two clubs are in advanced talks on a permanent deal that will end Werner's time at the Stamford Bridge club.

Chelsea will not get a fee anywhere near what they paid for Werner two summers ago.

However, a sale does allow them to recoup some funds this summer, which helps with their pursuits of new signings as well.

Leicester's Wesley Fofana, Barcelona's Frenkie de Jong and a striker are targets, after Chelsea already secured Raheem Sterling, Kalidou Koulibaly, Gabriel Slonina, Carney Chukwuemeka, and Marc Cucurella.
