Werner has agreed in principle to join Chelsea in a deal worth £53million, with wages of £180,000 a week.

But according to The Athletic, the RB Leipzig striker is unable to fly to England to put the finishes touches on the transfer.

Chelsea doctors would not be able to fly to Germany because they would have to isolate for two weeks upon their return.

This would mean that the doctors would be unavailable for Frank Lampard and his squad as new government rules state that all those arriving in Britain – including UK nationals –  are required to provide an address where they will self-isolate for 14 days.

Travellers who fail to fill in the forms with these details and refuse to self-isolate will be fined.

To avoid this, the Blues could use the German FA doctor in the meantime but are more likely to wait until the Bundesliga season is over on June 27 or travel restrictions in the UK change.

Werner, who has scored four goals since the Bundesliga restarted last month, would be a great addition for Chelsea should he be able to complete his medical.

Frank Lampard’s team, who are currently fourth in the Premier League and on course to qualify for next season’s Champions League, are preparing to return to action against Aston Villa on June 21.
