It’s fair to say Chelsea have won the transfer window this summer.
Frank Lampard has been splashing the cash with more than £200 million spent…and counting.
Kai Havertz (£72m), Timo Werner (£47m), Ben Chilwell (£45m) and Hakim Ziyech (£36m) have all arrived with defenders Thiago Silva and Malang Sarr also coming through the door on a free transfer.
They’re also on the brink of purchasing goalkeeper Edouard Mendy from Rennes for around £20 million.
There will now be an enormous amount of pressure on Lampard and his squad to achieve great things this season.
But with this much talent, there’s surely no way Chelsea will fail to succeed.
In Havertz, they have one of the biggest talents to come out of Germany in many years. In Chilwell, they have the best English left-back. In Ziyech, they have an exciting, pacy winger. In Silva, they have a very talented and experienced centre-back.
But it Werner, they have one of the best goalscorers in world football.
The 24-year-old was heavily linked with a move to Liverpool but the Blues
hesitate. The German scored 34 goals in 45 appearances last season for RB Leipzig and will be expected to hit similar figures in England.
But if his performance in training is anything to go by, then he might even exceed that.
That’s because a 56-second video is going viral of Werner finding the back of the net on countless occasions during a training drill.
Right foot, left foot, side foot, laces, Werner has every type of finish in the locker.

Timo Werner apparently did not miss a single chance in the recent training session 😱

Werner took a matter of minutes to open his Chelsea account during their pre-season friendly against Brighton. And he will be looking to hit the ground running in the Premier League against the same opponents on Monday.
One guy that certainly rates him highly is legendary Premier League striker, Ian Wright.
“This guy Timo Werner, I watched him in that competition before the World Cup with guys like Goretzka and you watch him and you think to yourself you can see what it is,” Wright said.
“It’s the sharpness and just how clinical he is and when you look at the way he is, you know when you look at a striker he knows he’s going to score. He’s got a kind of persona about him where he feels ‘I am going to Chelsea and I am going to score and I’m going to do very well’.
“You have to look at Tammy and the guys and think to yourself you need to tap into how he thinks. Because when I watch him when he walks out he’s got a look on his face where I’m going to score, I’m going to link up, I’m going to do my stuff and I’m going to score.
He’s got it, he’s got the striker vibe. It’s what Shearer was like. You look at Shearer and you watch him walk into a room, he looks like if there was a goal in this room I’m going to score it. Teddy Sheringham, Michael Owen, Robbie Fowler you look at those players and he’s got that.
