Chelsea have signed Timo Werner but what will he bring to Dream Team next season?

Chelsea got the bulk of their summer transfer business done early by snapping up Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner before the transfer window opened.

Now with just weeks to go before the new season, the Blues can concentrate on their pre-season preparation while Dream Team managers can begin to weigh up the possibility of adding both players to their team.

What could Timo Werner bring to your fantasy football team?

While Ziyech will likely be the centre of Chelsea’s creativity in the upcoming campaign, Werner will be their main attacking outlet – with Tammy Abraham and Olivier Giroud likely waiting in the wings.

After all, the German striker was one of the most sought after players in Europe last season – with Liverpool and Inter Milan said to be looking at him closely.

Indeed many fans and experts alike feel Chelsea pulled off a mighty coup by snapping him up from RB Leipzig – who finished 3rd in the Bundesliga last season thanks largely to Werner’s 28 goals in the league.

 

In total he notched 34 goals across all competitions and also laid on an impressive 10 assists – while WhoScored’s rating’s system and Dream Team’s points metric tells us he would’ve picked up an incredible 344 points on our game, had they been counted.

To put that into perspective, that total amount would put him comfortably ahead of Raheem Sterling at the top of the table.

It’s also worth noting that his 28 league goals is five more than Golden Boot winner Jamie Vardy’s total of 23.

We imagine plenty of you will want to pick the German now that we’ve launched the 2020/21 edition of the game.

The German starts out at a very reasonable £4m, making him cheaper than Vardy, Raul Jimenez and Anthony Martial (all £5m).
