How Chelsea could line up after they sign Timo Werner and one other transfer target | Football | Sport

“Blues will pay his clause. Liverpool had offered the same salary to German striker in the last weeks, but asked a discount to Leipzig, that rejected.”

If Werner seals a move to Stamford Bridge it will put a lot of pressure on youngster Tammy Abraham.

The 22-year-old is also having a great season and has scored 15 goals in 34 appearances in all competitions.

Lampard hasn’t been afraid to mix up his formations this season but may end up favouring a 4-2-3-1 rather than a 4-3-3.

The three attacking midfielder positions in this setup could allow Lampard to include Werner behind Abraham, while also accommodating the likes of Callum Hudson-Odoi, Mason Mount, Christian Pulisic, Ross Barkley and new signing Hakim Ziyech.

However, with Chelsea spending big to back Lampard with more firepower this summer, Werner isn’t likely to be sitting on the bench next season.
