Timo Werner in action for Chelsea against host Brighton in the EPL Monday night

Werner was heavily linked with a move to EPL champion Liverpool before opting for Chelsea

Timo Werner said Wednesday that he was in discussions with Liverpool over a close season transfer but eventually chose Chelsea as they were the perfect fit for his game while manager Frank Lampard also played a key role in making the decision.

Chelsea signed the German striker, 24, in a reported 50m euros ($59.20m) deal in June as the London club looked to rebuild their squad ahead of the new season.

Werner, who scored 34 goals for RB Leipzig last season, was heavily linked with a move to Premier League champion Liverpool but said he opted for Chelsea as he was convinced he would thrive in Lampard’s system.

The Covid-19 pandemic prevented an early face-to-face meeting with Lampard but Werner described how the Chelsea boss was constantly in touch over the phone, even sending him videos of how he planned to use the Germany international this season.

Chelsea, who won their season opener 3-1 at Brighton and Hove Albion, host Liverpool Sunday.
