Timo Werner wants to lead Chelsea's 'new era' after £45m transfer

Timo Werner's Germany team-mate Kai Havertz could join him in London

Timo Werner says he hopes to lead Chelsea's new era and credits head coach Frank Lampard for bringing him to the club.

The 24-year-old, who joined in with his new team-mates on Tuesday, says he looked up to the likes of Lampard, Didier Drogba and Petr Cech and hopes to be part of an exciting future at the club.


"It is like a little dream for me but I want to become, not the same player like them, but I want to be part of a new era here so I will play to try to give my best."

Werner also said Lampard's style of play and personality was a big reason why he chose to leave Germany for the Premier League.

"He (Lampard) was the main point," he added. "We talked a lot about things like system, like how he wants to play and sees me playing, and how the system fits to me.

"He is a really nice guy who not only told me what he wants from me as a player because he wants to help me as a guy. He knows me now a little bit better and it fits very good between us and now I am happy to be here." บาคาร่า
