Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham appears to have welcomed Timo Werner to the Blues by liking a social media post commenting on the transfer going through. The Blues are expected to pay the £53million release clause for the 24-year-old next week and beat Liverpool to his signature.
Werner has been in sensational form this season, netting 31 goals and providing 12 assists in all competitions.
The Germany international will fight with Abraham, Olivier Giroud and Michy Batshuayi for a place up front.
Werner can also play from the left-hand side though.
Abraham has led the line for Chelsea this season and has helped them to fourth in the table at present.
And the England international doesn’t seem worried about the arrival of Werner after liking a social media confirming the transfer to Stamford Bridge according to The Sun.

Kepa Arrizabalaga and Antonio Rudiger also ‘liked’ the post, but the defender later ‘unliked’ it.
Werner is expected to be offered a five-year contract worth a mammoth £200,000-a-week.

"[Werner's] a fantastic player," Leboeuf told ESPN FC.
"We've seen him for the past two years and it's a very good catch for Chelsea because he almost signed for Bayern Munich last year.
"We talked about Liverpool a couple of months ago and now he's fortunately going to go to Chelsea and I'm very happy about that.
"He's going to give versatility in the attack in a frontline as a striker.
"Tammy Abraham is more somebody who is going to hold the ball but when Werner's going to play he's going to give something else to the midfielders and to the defence as well.
"So it's a very good catch, I'm very happy.
"I want to see it with Ziyech on the right side, maybe Pulisic on the left side.
"That's going to be very, very interesting. I think it's a very, very good signing yeah."
Chelsea return to Premier League action on Sunday, June 21 when they take on Aston Villa at 4.15pm.
