Timo Werner is a Chelsea forward. A player with wonderful acceleration and speed, he is fondly called “Turbo Timo”. Werner is an energetic attacker, whose direct running and ability to drop deep and link with his teammates makes him a very big asset to his team
He appeared for the Stuttgart U-19 despite being only 16 years. He will go on to score 24 goals for the youth team. He was promoted to the senior team becoming the youngest player for Stuttgart in the Bundesliga and DFB-Pokal. He is also their youngest goalscorer. He will go on to score 14 goals and provided 11 assists in 103 games for Stuttgart
When Stuttgart got relegated from the German Bundesliga, Timo Werner moved to RB Leipzig in a club-record deal worth €10 million. He ended his season as the league’s highest goalscorer with 24 goals and helped RB Leipzig qualify for the Champions League.
He is the youngest player to reach 150 appearances in the Bundesliga reaching the milestone in March 2018. He scored 95 goals and provided 40 assists for RB Leipzig in 159 appearances for his team. This effectively made him RB Leipzig the highest goalscorer of all-time ahead of Daniel Frahn.
Timo Werner was signed by Chelsea in June 2020 when they activated his release clause of £47.5 million. He will become a regular for the first team being preferred as the focal point of attack ahead of Olivier Giroud and Tammy Abraham.
After an inconsistent start and prolificacy in front of the net, Thomas Tuchel came and helped him regain his form to some extent. He helped Chelsea qualify for the FA Cup final and Champions League.
He was instrumental as Chelsea defeated Man City in the Champions League final with his direct running dragging Manchester City players out wide allowing Kai Havertz a clean run through the middle to score.
