Mulder: Chelsea signing Werner perfect for Ziyech

Schalke hero Youri Mulder has hailed Chelsea's deal for RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner.

Mulder says Werner will be the ideal foil for Ajax midfielder Hakim Ziyech, who is also on his way to Chelsea this summer.

"He's the ideal player for Ziyech," Mulder said on Ziggo Sport.

"In that regard, Chelsea has done well. Werner comes a bit from the left side and goes deep.

"Ziyech can turn in from the right and can hit passes with his great left foot to Werner."
