RB Leipzig sent a cheeky reply to a ​Chelsea fan on Twitter who suggested that a Timo Werner tweet was hinted at a January move to the Blues. The 23-year-old German striker was on the scoresheet as the ​Bundesliga resumed after the German league’s traditional winter break.

Werner notched a brace in Leipzig’s 3-1 win over Union Berlin to take his tally to an impressive 25 goals already this season. After the game, ​he posted on Twitter: “Haben dich vermisst, Bundesliga.” Which translates to “Missed you, Bundesliga.”

In response to the suggestion that Werner was actually touting a move to Chelsea, the German club mocked up a tweet to make the translation read: “I’ve seen Chelsea play vs Newcastle, so I’ll stay in Bundesliga.”

This isn't the first time Chelsea fans have been mocked by the German outfit.

Back in December last year, another Chelsea fan was trolled by Leipzig after they took to social media begging the club to sign Werner.

With Chelsea now allowed to sign players in January, it has led to speculation that Werner could be on boss Frank Lampard's shopping list. Tammy Abraham has bagged the central striker role this season, while doubts persist over the future of Michy Batshuayi and Olivier Giroud.

Werner & Co are currently four points clear at the top of the Bundesliga table, and it would seem crazy for manager Julian Nagelsmann to sanction a transfer in these circumstances.
