Werner made the move right after helping RB Leipzig finished third in the Bundesliga with 28 goals scored and said his discussions with Lampard over how he would fit into the Chelsea side convinced him to sign for the Premier League club.
“He [Lampard] was the main point. We talked a lot about things like the 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.” Werner told the club website.
“When you have a decision to go from your old club and you come to a big club like this, it was for me a dream which came true because Chelsea is a very big club.
“I know of the players before when they won the Champions League with Drogba, with my new manager Frank Lampard, Petr Cech as the technical advisor, it is like a little dream for me but I want to become, not a 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 doesn’t back down from external expectations around him, as he visualizes himself being a great match for the Premier League’s high intensity football, and setting a target to score even more goals than he did from the 95 he scored in just 159 appearances for Leipzig.
“The first day is always a little bit crazy because you don’t know everybody so much and not only the team, it is always a pleasure to meet the team behind the team the first time and now I am very happy and excited to meet them.
“The style of the Premier League is very fast and my speciality is that I am really fast so I think it is perfect for me to play here. It is another league in another country so I can improve myself to bring it to another level, so those are the reasons I come to the Premier League and to Chelsea.”
“I’ll try to score as much goals as I can for Chelsea, that is the big reason why they bought me, to bring the goals I scored in Leipzig here, and maybe score more goals than there.”
