Timo Werner sends Christopher Nkunku honest Chelsea transfer advice
Timo Werner’s message for Christopher Nkunku ahead of summer Chelsea switch.
Timo Werner has advised Christopher Nkunku ahead of his potential move to Chelsea. Werner has admitted that he will not give specific advice to Christopher Nkunku as he prepares to join Stamford Bridge in the summer, but that time and experience will be a valuable ally to the Frenchman.
However, Werner has cautioned that Nkunku should be aware that Chelsea is a different proposition than Leipzig.
Since 2021, Nkunku has developed into one of the most productive forwards in Europe. For Leipzig, he has scored and assisted on 76 goals in the past 18 months alone.
Although Nkunku’s signing to Chelsea has not yet been officially announced, mp3bullet reported in November that the last-minute details were being finalized for a July transfer.

The Blues made clear a willingness to pay slightly over a £56m release clause coming into play at the end of the season in order to secure the player ahead of time, with the knee injury that ruled Nkunku out of the World Cup with France ending any chances of a deal going through.
Werner already made the same move from Leipzig to Chelsea in 2020, only to end up heading back on a permanent deal just two years later.
“Everyone has to make their own experiences,” the German told Sport Bild.
“I had a very good first year, the second was so-so. I can tell [Nkunku] about positive and negative experiences should he change.
“At a club like [Chelsea], you don’t play like you do at RB Leipzig because there’s more competition – not just on a sporting level, but also on a different level, mentally.
“You have to deal with that and everyone has to find their own way. That’s why it’s the wrong approach to give tips to others. Time has changed me a lot.”
