Eminently adorable but tragically misfiring former Champions League-winning Chelsea striker Timo Werner is back in the Premier League, just a year and a half after leaving the Blues to go back to RB Leipzig.
Tottenham Hotspur officially confirmed the loan-signing of Turbo Timo, who joins on a six-month deal with an option to make the move permanent. That option is said to be just €17m, a far cry from the €60m we paid in 2020 and even from the €20+10m we got back from Leipzig.
Werner hadn’t quite found the same level of success at Leipzig than he had prior to his Chelsea move, scoring just 18 goals in 54 games this time around, and just two this season while starting only four games in all competitions. Hopefully he won’t suddenly find his shooting boots at Spurs!
I’m not going to wish too much good luck to Timo on the pitch (or any, really), but I do wish him bon appétit for all the ketchup and pasta.
