According to BILD, Werner has ruled himself out of Leipzig’s quarter-final tie in this year’s Champions League.
24-year-old Werner only plans to complete the Bundesliga season then head to Chelsea.
It comes as a blow for Leipzig, with their next Champions League game called their ‘biggest in history’ by BILD.
The German newspaper says Werner’s move to Chelsea ‘should be completed in the next few days’ for a €53m fee.
The Coronavirus pandemic and restrictions have delayed Werner’s medical with the London club.
But it now seems to be a matter of time – days if BILD information is to be believed.
