Ex-Chelsea Star Werner Joins Spurs On Loan

Tottenham Hotspur have announced the signing of former Chelsea forward Timo Werner on loan from RB Leipzig.

In a statement released on Spurs’ website, Werner will join Spurs on loan until the end of the season, with an option to make the deal permanent in the summer.

The 27-year-old began his early career with TSV Steinhaldenfeld before joining VfB Stuttgart’s youth team, progressing through the ranks to make his senior debut in August, 2013, in a Europa League qualifying fixture, becoming the youngest player in the club’s history.

During his time with Stuttgart, Timo made 103 senior appearances, scoring 14 goals and remains the club’s youngest-ever goalscorer after netting his first professional goal in a Bundesliga fixture in September, 2013.

He joined RB Leipzig ahead of the 2016/17 season – the club’s debut season in the top flight of German football.

An impressive campaign saw him score 21 goals in 32 games in all competitions for the Bundesliga side, helping the team to a second place finish and qualification for the UEFA Champions League.

Since arriving at Leipzig, Werner finished as the club’s top league goalscorer in four consecutive seasons and, in November, 2019, made Bundesliga history when he registered a hat-trick of goals and assists in the club’s 8-0 victory over Mainz.

During a prolific 2019/20 campaign, where he scored 34 goals in 45 games in all competitions, he claimed the Bundesliga Player of the Month award for November, 2019, and December, 2019, and a place in the Bundesliga Team of the Season.

In July, 2020, Werner signed for Chelsea and made his Premier League debut in September, 2020, against Brighton and Hove Albion, scoring his first goal for the Blues the same month.

He made a total of 89 appearances for Chelsea, scoring 23 goals, and helped the team claim the 2020/21 UEFA Champions League, the UEFA Super Cup in August, 2021, and the FIFA Club World Cup in February, 2022.

He returned to Leipzig in August, 2022, and claimed the 2022/23 German Cup (DFB-Pokal) and the German Super Cup (DFL-Supercup) in August, 2023.

Across two spells with the Bundesliga side, he has made 213 appearances in all competitions, scoring 113 times.
