While talking about the move, Werner expressed how “delighted” he is signing up with Chelsea, calling it a “very proud moment”.

The striker also remembered to thank his former club, saying they will “forever be in my heart”.

He concluded with: “I look forward to next season with my new teammates, my new manager and, of course, the Chelsea fans. Together we have a very successful future ahead of us.”
