The Blues won the raise to sign Werner from RB Leipzig before the end of the season and he officially moved to Stamford Bridge on July 1.
That has given him two months to get to know his new Blues teammates ahead of the start of the 2020/21 Premier League season in September.
Speaking to Sport-Information-Dienst, Werner’s former RB Leipzig teammate Yussuf Poulsen says the 24-year-old will be a success with Chelsea, provided he is given time to settle.
“I think Timo will be a great striker in the Premier League over the next few years,” he said.
“Of course, he has to get to know his team-mates and the league first; you can’t show all your qualities right away.
“But that will come in time.”
Danish attacker Poulsen has been another one of Leipzig’s standout players in their rise to third in the Bundesliga.
The 26-year-old has not ruled out leaving Leipzig himself in the future but says he is happy to remain at the Red Bull Arena in the short-term.

“At some point I will definitely try something different, but I’m only 26 years old and at the moment I’m very happy in Leipzig,” he said.
“If I had planned my career 10 years ago, I would certainly not have earmarked seven years in Leipzig, but I’ve been here that long now.
“When I signed, I hadn’t even heard of Leipzig.”
