Timo Werner has insisted he made the "hard decision" to join Chelsea in order to win top titles.

The £53million RB Leipzig recruit admitted interest from the likes of Liverpool, but revealed Frank Lampard sold him to Chelsea on his Stamford Bridge vision.

Werner hailed Lampard's £200million Chelsea overhaul, backing the Blues to capitalise on that rebuild and chase major honours in England.

Liverpool had shown strong early interest in Werner but where the Reds baulked at the fee due to the coronavirus impact Chelsea were able to swoop for one of Europe's top talents.

Now settling into life at Stamford Bridge, Werner insisted Chelsea quickly became his top choice once Lampard explained his Stamford Bridge plans.

"I've come here to win titles, Chelsea is a big club and a club that always wants to win," said Werner.

"For me I always want to win every game. So it's clear we want to win titles.

"Now we have a very strong team and a young team that can develop, and can go through a period of a long time where we can stay together, because we are young and we want to win.

"And that's a good way for what I want to reach here.

"Because I am here to win titles and win a lot of games, as many games as possible.

"I wanted to come to the Premier League because it's the world's best league, and for me it's the best feeling to play in front of Premier League fans.

"When we played at Tottenham with Leipzig it was crazy, really crazy to play there in front of the people.

"So I wanted to have the feeling to play in the Premier League, to play for such a big club like Chelsea. And that's why I came here.

"When I decided to leave Leipzig I talked to different clubs, of course, next to Chelsea, there were some other clubs that I talked to.

"But for me I don't want to talk about so much about other clubs, because in the end I decided for Chelsea.

"Of course there were some other clubs also, like Liverpool - who have a great team, and also maybe I can fit good to some other teams.

"But at the end I decided to join Chelsea because for me it was the best decision I can take. Not only because of the style of football but also because of what they have shown to me.

"I think it was a hard decision in the end but I am very, very excited and proud that I decided like this because now when I have been here for at least one and a half months, it feels right."
