The German international frontman grew up wanting to follow in the footsteps of Premier League icons and now he has that chance in West London

Timo Werner admits that he grew up with the “young Cristiano Ronaldo” and the Chelsea legend Didier Drogba. The German striker now wants to write his own success story in the Premier League.

A big step has brought the 24-year-old frontman to Stamford Bridge.

Still waiting for a top English league debut, his blues account opened in the Carabao Cup competition but sparks are expected to fly at some point.

This is because Werner has arrived in West London and has a productive record from his time at RB Leipzig.

His undoubted ability and determination to succeed should help his cause too, as he has a desire to emulate the efforts of his childhood heroes – which includes the man he now plays under at Chelsea.

Werner told Three: “It’s a dream for me to play in the biggest league in the world now.

“Of course you don’t see much of the Premier League clubs as a child, but you see the teams in the Champions League.

“You see people like Chelsea and Manchester United. These were the clubs that won a lot in their youth.

“You might see young Ronaldo or, here at Chelsea, Didier Drogba and also Frank Lampard, the manager. You have a lot of legends in the club here.

“When you come to the club they work for the club and when you see them as a kid like 10 and then you see Ashley Cole, Frank Lampard, Petr Cech, you say wow, it’s crazy that I’m here now am with them. ”

Werner was picked up by Chelsea in a £ 47.5 million ($ 62 million) deal when Lampard embarked on a lavish shopping spree.

The blues are now under pressure to achieve tangible success, but everyone associated with the club is pulling in the same direction – although efforts still need to be made with no supporters present.

Werner added: “It’s a lot of fun.

“It was a bit difficult without fans because I think the fans in the Premier League play an important role in the whole game, especially here.

“It’s different because in Germany they always sing and always have fun. But here the feuds play a big role.

“They watch it and they love it when you attack, create a chance or score. This feeling is something special.

“I felt it in Leipzig when we played against Tottenham. It was crazy how you felt. It was a different feeling than in the Bundesliga.

“I’m looking forward to having the fans here again.”

Chelsea will be back in action on Saturday with a home game against Southampton.
