Pulisic excited to see ‘dangerous’ Werner revolutionise Chelsea attack

Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic says he is looking forward to seeing the “very dangerous” Timo Werner line up for the Blues next season.

Chelsea announced an agreement with the Germany international last month after reports linking him with Liverpool.

Werner is the second attacking signing of the summer at Stamford Bridge, following Hakim Ziyech’s arrival from Ajax.

The pair will add another exciting dimension to an attack which Pulisic – who struggled for form earlier in the season – has improved with his recent impressive performances.

Speaking to Chelsea’s official website, Pulisic explained how he is excited to see Werner get stuck in under Frank Lampard.

“He’s a very dangerous player,” the American said. “I think he has some similar qualities to me and some of the attacking guys we have. He’s obviously very quick and very good in front of goal.

“He seems like a very humble guy. He wants to come in and wants to work.

“Playing against him has been a great experience and it’s going to be nice to have him on my team as well. So I’m definitely looking forward to that.”

Ziyech and Werner mean Olivier Giroud, Tammy Abraham and Callum Hudson-Odoi face further competition for places.



Giroud enjoyed a resurgence in the second half of the season after wanting to leave in January. Abraham, meanwhile, dropped off after a blistering start.

However, several reports claim Chelsea’s work in the transfer market has not finished.

Lampard wants to bolster his side’s goal threat further by signing attacking midfielder Kai Havertz. TEAMtalk learned last week how both Chelsea and Bayer Leverkusen are close to agreeing a deal.

Elsewhere, Lampard has reportedly become frustrated after Manchester United made a breakthrough in talks with Dean Henderson.

Englishman Henderson is a target for Chelsea in their bid to remedy their problems between the sticks.

However, United have reportedly made up ground on talks to sign the former Sheffield United loanee – who is now back at Old Trafford – to a permanent deal.
