Chelsea is under pressure to wrap up on RB Leipzig’s Timo Werner signing this weekend or the deal may never happen, reports the UK Mirror.
The Premier League side expected to confirm the move this week, after the player beat Liverpool.
The Blues are willing to pay the £50 million release clause in Werner’s current contract, and have been engaged in advanced German negotiations.
However, the release clause for Werner expires on Monday, meaning Chelsea only has two days to seal the deal.
A 24-year-old medical is proving to be tricky, with both Germany and the UK having the COVID-19 regulations.
If all of that is not sorted by Monday, Leipzig could raise Werner’s fee and Chelsea might lose out.
