The German forward is not only in phenomenal form but thought to be available at the bargain price of around 50 million Euros.

It has been revealed that the player has a release clause in his contract that is set to expire at the end of the month.

After June 30th his current employers feel they will be in greater control of the player’s future only having to sell should their valuation be met.

Liverpool was believed to be the favorites, but according to German outlet Bild, the Stamford Bridge club is looking to capitalize on Jurgen Klopp’s indecision and activate the clause.

The London club who is bankrolled by Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich is said to willing to pay the 24-year-old as much as 10 million Euro’s a season and offer him a five-year contract.

There have been many suitors for Werner, the question is are Chelsea the right choice for him?
