'He's world-class' - Werner confident Lukaku's presence at Chelsea will benefit him as Inter striker closes in on Stamford Bridge return

 The German frontman thinks that the Blues' incoming record signing will add a new dimension to the Blues' attack

Timo Werner has expressed his belief that Romelu Lukaku's presence at Chelsea will help him make a bigger impact in the final third as the Inter striker closes in on a return to Stamford Bridge.

Goal has reported that Chelsea have reached an agreement to re-sign Lukaku from Inter for a club-record fee of £98 million ($135m), with the 28-year-old set to commit to a lucrative five-year contract.

Lukaku will be expected to slot straight into Thomas Tuchel's lineup upon his arrival in west London, with it suggested that Werner's playing time could be reduced as a result, but he is hopeful that they can both lead the Blues' attack in 2021-22.
