Chelsea set to complete Timo Werner deal this weekend

    Chelsea are expected to complete their move for Germany international Timo Werner by next week as the deal appears to have been slowed down by logistics of completing a medical with COVID-19 restrictions in place.

    The RB Leipzig forward’s release clause reaches its expiration on Monday with the move already being considered as a major coup for Chelsea boss Frank Lampard.

    Chelsea have already secured a £37million deal for Hakim Ziyech from Eredivisie giants Ajax since February and they are reportedly confident in securing another deal by signing England international and Leicester City left-back Ben Chilwell.

    One would begin to wonder the source of Chelsea’s buoyant transfer kitty. Well, the spending spree is due to their lack of activity over the past two transfer windows coupled with the sales of Eden Hazard to Real Madrid and Alvaro Morata to Atletico Madrid respectively.

    The Blues are also expected to receive a further £13.5million after the sporting director of Serie A outfit Atalanta, Giovanni Sartori, disclosed that the club will take advantage of the option to make Mario Pasalic’s loan move permanent.

    Mario Pasalic, 25, joined Chelsea in 2014 and has not made a single appearance for the club. This is unarguably the best move for the player and the club.

    Sartori made the club’s decision known in a chat with Sky Sport in Italy:

    “We’re going to buy Mario Pasalic on a permanent deal from Chelsea,”

    “We want to use the buy option.”

    The Blues will also look to let go of players who are surplus to requirements to counter their spending.

    The likes of Pedro, and Willian, who are over 30, are likely to leave Chelsea this summer on free transfers and this will save the club some income in wages.

    Meanwhile, Belgium international Michy Batshuayi is set to be sold as London club West Ham are reportedly interested in signing him.
