The 26-year-old is returning to the Bundesliga after leaving two years ago to join Chelsea after Chelsea activated a £45m release clause.

But the player failed to replicate his scoring form at the English club, where he scored 23 goals in 89 appearances in all competitions.

He was originally going to return to the club on a season-long loan with an option to buy, but negotiations between the two clubs moved quickly and an agreement was reached for the German international to move permanently.

Werner wanted to return to his old club and get regular playing time to secure a starting spot for Germany in the World Cup in November.

Werner, who has also shown interest from Juventus, made only 15 Premier League appearances last season, scoring four goals.

As you know, the player was not in the squad for Chelsea’s first victory of the season over Everton.

Chelsea received 20 million euros for the striker. The contract also provides for bonuses in the form of 10 million euros. When buying a player in 2020, Chelsea paid 53 million euros.

The 26-year-old played for RB Leipzig between 2016 and 2020 and scored 95 goals in 159 games, making him the club’s record goal scorer.
