Timo Werner transfer has motivated Chelsea strikers, claims Olivier Giroud as he comes out fighting – The SunJune 20, 2020
OLIVIER GIROUD reckons the signing of Timo Werner has motivated the rest of the Chelsea forwards.
And the Frenchman is refusing to give up on his spot in the Blues team just yet.
Chelsea confirmed the signing of Werner this week with a £48million deal agreed with RB Leipzig for the Germany international.
It could easily spell bad news for Tammy Abraham despite already scoring 13 Premier League goals in his first season as the first-choice striker at Stamford Bridge.
Werner has been in blistering form for RB Leipzig in the Bundesliga, bagging 26 goals in just 32 league appearances.
Speaking to The Guardian, though, Giroud reckons it could actually be good for the Chelsea attackers as it pushes them to higher levels.
He said: "He is going to be a very good signing and more motivation for strikers.
“We have a very competitive team, with a good alchemy between the youngsters and experienced players.
"We expect new signings because it’s been two transfer windows but I have a lot of expectation about this squad.”
