    Antonio Rüdiger convinced Timo Werner to join Chelsea

    « Back

    Chelsea and Germany international defender Antonio Rüdiger has revealed he was in constant contact with new signing Timo Werner during lockdown to persuade his international teammate to join the Premier League club.

    “I did speak to him before because we have known each other for a long time,” Rüdiger told Chelsea TV. “We spoke a lot during the lockdown and he told me he was interested in coming to England. Of course then I did my bit, what I had to do.

    “He’s a big threat to defenders. RB Leipzig is a more counter-attacking team but in terms of attacking the defensive line, he’s similar to Vardy. He has a lot of pace and if the defender makes a mistake and loses the ball, then he goes.”

    Werner will join Chelsea for €60 million.
