Chelsea can mount a challenge for the Premier League title next season if they sign both Timo Werner and Ben Chilwell, according to former Blues midfielder Craig Burley. Chelsea have agreed a deal to sign RB Leipzig striker Werner after activating the £49million release clause in his contract. Frank Lampard has seemingly beaten rivals Liverpool to the German's signature.

Chelsea have already signed Hakim Ziyech from Ajax but their transfer business looks set to continue.

They are keen on signing Leicester left-back Chilwell and Burley says, if they can get both Chilwell and Werner over the line, there is no reason why Chelsea cannot compete for the top prize next term.

"The other signing we talked about there, Ben Chilwell, I really like him, really, really like him," Burley told ESPN FC.

"I looked at clubs in England that might need a left-back, I thought Man City, who have got full-backs but have had a problem in that area, might go for him.

"If Chelsea can get Ben Chilwell, that would be a huge signing as well because he's got unbelievable pace to get up and down that wing. When Lampard likes to play [Marcos] Alonso, it's in a back three.

"He doesn't like him as a full-back. He has to play [Cesar] Azpilicueta there but he's a right footer.

"Ben Chilwell will give them great balance down that left-hand side and if he can get those two signings, on top of all those other players we've mentioned, Chelsea will be in the mix next season. There's not a doubt about it for me."

Burley understands why Liverpool may have pulled out of a deal for Werner, saying Chelsea's need for the player is much greater.

"I think Liverpool clearly have the money but, as good as Timo Werner is and I think he's a brilliant player, he was a non-essential player for Liverpool," Burley added.

"So therefore with the restrictions and financial hit that clubs have taken, they're only going to spend money if they absolutely need to.

"Now, Chelsea's need was more because Tammy Abraham has done a fantastic job but he's not a German international, he hasn't got the quality or flexibility that Timo Werner brings.

"So he was an essential signing for Chelsea and I think that's why they've pushed the boat out, Abramovich has said 'Okay, we'll pay the release clause because we need this player, we want to get back to the top and he's essential for us'.

"He wasn't essential for Liverpool and I think that was a smart business move from them.

"Maybe not a smart football move, but a smart business move."
