And he said: “I am very happy to be able to play for RB Leipzig again.

“I had a great time here between 2016 and 2020 when we did a great job as a promoted team in the league.

“But I’m looking ahead because both I and the club have developed over the past two years.”

Werner was Chelsea’s top scorer in the Champions League and only Mason Mount played more for the Blues in 2020-21.

But he never convinced the current boss Thomas Tuchel.

However, Werner stressed: “I’ve had two great years at Chelsea for which I’m really grateful and was crowned with the Champions League trophy.

“The experience of playing in a new league abroad has helped me and my career a lot.

“Now I’m looking forward to the new season at RB Leipzig and, above all, to seeing the Leipzig fans again, who mean a lot to me.

“We want to achieve a lot and of course I want to be the first Leipzig player to reach the 100 goal mark.”

And the club’s technical director Christopher Vivell claimed the “fantastic” Werner will take the Germans to “another level”.

Newcastle had also been linked with the ex-Stuttgart star with 53 caps.

But Leipzig was always the favourite.

And Vivell believes that “thanks to his profile, he will bring a different dynamic to our attack”.

He added: “His speed and finish are fantastic; He will take our attacking game to a new level and above all make us more unpredictable.

“Timo is a German international. He has a lot of experience on the international stage and knows RB Leipzig very well – he will play a leading role here.

“We have a brilliant level of variety and depth in our attack and plenty of quality going forward.”
