Timo Werner has admitted to having doubts over a transfer to Chelsea after watching his new club lose to Bayern Munich in the Champions League last season. The Blues won the race to sign Werner ahead of several clubs.
Lampard’s men finished fourth in the Premier League while also reaching the FA Cup final, but suffered an early exit in the Champions League at the hands of eventual winners Bayern Munich. Chelsea were dumped out at the last-16 stage after a 7-1 aggregate defeat.
Werner has conceded that the final result in west London made him question the merits of a potential switch to west London, telling Sport Bild journalist Christian Falk: “I would be lying if I said it wasn’t like that. The 3-0 home defeat of Chelsea in the first leg against Bayern hadn’t exactly spoken in favour of going to London. I have to say that openly, because with Leipzig we always played very good and close games against Bayern.”
