Timo Werner, a former Chelsea striker who shocked everyone by making a surprise return to the Premier League with Tottenham Hotspur in the January transfer window, will be a “big loss” for RB Leipzig.


If Timo Werner’s problems at Stamford Bridge are any indication, the problems from his Spurs debut during the 2-2 draw with Manchester United still exist.


Werner wasted a better opportunity after cutting inside and ballooning a wild effort high and wide, as he sped past Diogo Dalot only to drag his last short past the far post. Take the sublime with the absurd, and the rough with the smooth, as is always the case with Werner.

Tottenham seizes the opportunity Timo Werner

Ange Postecoglou praised the Germany international for a “really exciting” performance as he celebrated his debut in Tottenham Hotspur colors by helping to set up Rodrigo Bentancur’s Old Trafford equalizer.


Although Werner may have had difficulty earning starts prior to his return to England, David Raum, a former Red Bull teammate, is adamant that the forward’s positive attitude and life experience both on and off the field will somewhat of a vacuum in Marco Rose’s squad.


“The season hasn’t been easy for him. The fact that he was injured the previous season naturally obviously plays a role, as left-back Raum explains to Sport1: “Yet he continued to mercilessly assist us repeatedly.”


“Everyone on the team got along well with Werner.” He cared for everyone, cheered them up, and was always there for them. It’s a huge loss for the dressing room because of this.


“However, I wish him the best if joining Tottenham was the only way for him to return to the Premier League.”


Now, Spurs look to Antonio Nusa

If Werner shows promise between now and the end of May, Tottenham might sign him permanently this summer for a fee of £15 million.


In addition, the London giants added Radu Dragusin, fending off challenges from AC Milan, Bayern Munich, Napoli, and Newcastle, before focusing on £26 million-rated forward Antonio Nusa of Club Brugge.
