Son Heung-min (32)’s team Tottenham (England) has hired Timo Werner, who played for Leipzig (Germany), on loan to fill Son Heung-min’s absence in the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup.
“Werner will play for Tottenham until the end of this season. The option to completely transfer has also been included since the end of his lease contract,” Tottenham announced on its website on Wednesday.
Son Heung-min is a key striker in charge of scoring the most goals with 12 goals and five assists in the English Premier League this season. Werner, who has to replace him, has to weigh heavily.마카오토토
Werner, who scored 24 goals (57 games) for the German national soccer team, scored 28 goals in the German Bundesliga in the 2019-2020 season, ranking second after Robert Lewandowski (34 goals), who was the top scorer for Munich at the time.
Werner joined Chelsea in 2020 and tried for the EPL, but failed to show much performance and returned to Leipzig in August 2022.
This season, he has scored only two goals in eight regular league matches due to lack of competition to become a starting member of his team, and has also been excluded from the German national team’s call-up list recently. Werner has to play in matches frequently and raise his sense of play.
Werner said on Tottenham’s website, “I’m happy to join the big club,” and added, “I’ll be reborn as the best player here.”
