The 24-year-old had been thought to to be attracting interest from Premier League champions-elect Liverpool but it appears Chelsea have in fact met the German's reported release clause of some £53 million (US$67 million).
Were Chelsea to bring Werner to Stamford Bridge it would be a major feather in the cap for the west London club.
For the past year there has been speculation linking Werner with a move to Anfield but time appears to be running out for the Reds, with the forward's release clause expiring on Jun 15 - two days before the Premier League is set to restart after a coronavirus-enforced break of several months.
The Germany international has scored 31 goals for Leipzig in all competitions.
Chelsea have already agreed a deal to sign Ajax winger Hakim Ziyech.
