Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has stated that RB Leipzig forward Timo Werner would be an ‘unbelievable signing’ for Chelsea.
The 24-year-old centre-forward has enjoyed an excellent season in Bundesliga, having registered 21 goals and 7 assists, and has been heavily linked with a move away from the German club, mainly to Liverpool.
Manchester United and Chelsea are also reportedly interested in signing the striker and Ferdinand believes Werner would be an incredible signing for whichever clubs that will eventually sign him up this summer.
During an Instagram Q&A session with his followers, United hero said:
“What he’s been doing for his club, he’s been playing particularly well he is their goal threat and so, if I’m Liverpool, I 100 per cent take him because they haven’t got that back-up for the front-three at the moment.
“If one of them gets injured for a sustained amount of time, they haven’t got anyone – as well as Divock Origi has done, the Champions League exploits, I’d want more than that.
“If I was Werner I’d be thinking: ‘I don’t think Salah is gonna be here that much longer, Mane might get bought out of here as well so I could get my chance that way’ but also I’d be thinking there’s enough games in the season to get games and I can make an impact, try and push my way in.
“But there’s other clubs… Chelsea I think are interested in him. He would be massive for Chelsea, an unbelievable signing for Chelsea.”
