Ralph Hasenhüttl was Timo Werner’s boss back at RB Leipzig, and the Southampton boss believes the player is perfect for the Premier League.

It appears that Timo Werner is bound for the Premier League.

The RB Leipzig and Germany forward is said to have all but agreed on a deal to move to Chelsea.

Although it would not be wise to rule out Liverpool, Manchester United, or Arsenal until the deal is signed and sealed.

If it is the Premier League, his old boss believes its a perfect fit.

Before becoming Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl was in charge of Werner’s current club RB Leipzig. The Austrian tactician knows the player well, as he does the Premier League too now.

Speaking to Sport Bild he said:

 “Football is very intense and fast in England. That, in turn, suits Timo: with his speed, he’s a brutal weapon in the right team.”

“He sometimes needs a shoulder to lean on, or a little more encouragement.”

“What I’ve always liked about him is that he scores goals that nobody else scores.”

“Give him a bit of space and it’s hard to stop him. He has so many qualities that will always put him above others.”

The Bundesliga has plenty of top talent on display right now.
