The Blues revealed on Thursday the arrival of the German forward from RB Leipzig on a five-year-contract, with the offer believed to be worth around ₤475 m.

Liverpool, who had actually formerly been greatly linked to the finalizing of Werner, are currently 34 points ahead of Chelsea in the Premier League and Berbatov does not think the finalizing of the 24- year-old will suffice to close that space entirely next season.

“We were all expecting him to move to a new club, he was strongly connected to Liverpool but obviously he has chosen Chelsea instead,” the Bulgarian informed Betfair.

” He will currently understand a lot about the club and the Premier League, he will understand what the football is like and he will definitely understand when he begins playing. In this situation there are 2 circumstances: whatever will click quickly, and he will require to it like a fish in water, he’ll be helping and scoring like he has actually been providing for Leipzig, or it will take a little bit of time to get gotten used to the Premier League, to the speed and physicality.

“Chelsea have got their man, but I still think they have a lot to do to become a title challenging side. He is not Messi or Ronaldo. It is a good step in the right direction and they are probably going to go for other players to bolster their squad, but signing Timo Werner is a good start.”

Werner has actually remained in fine form throughout the 2019-20 campaign, netting 26 times in the Bundesliga, offering him an overall of 93 goals to date over a four-year duration with the German outfit.
