Timo Werner’s revelation about the “larger picture” comes amid Newcastle’s interest in the Chelsea midfielder.
Following their multi-billion pound Saudi takeover, Newcastle have emerged as potential bidders for Timo Werner, but the striker will consider long and hard about his future before jumping ship from Chelsea.
Timo Werner has stated that when deciding whether or not to leave Chelsea, he must consider the “whole picture.” Newcastle has expressed interest in him.
According to German newspaper BILD, Werner, 25, has been added to the Magpies’ target list following their Saudi Arabian Public Investment Fund (PIF) ownership.
The north-east club has been in contact with the German international’s agency and is now supported by owners worth an estimated £320 billion.
Following a rocky start at Stamford Bridge, his future is up in the air, a scenario that only got worse when Romelu Lukaku joined this summer.
Werner, on the other hand, is eager to compete for a place in the Blues lineup and has stated that he will weigh all considerations before deciding on his future.
He recently told Express.de, through BuliNews, that: “I’ve had a difficult time at Chelsea in recent weeks. I slipped behind and had to work hard to catch up.
“Things in a career usually move up and down, never consistently up. But you grow accustomed to it.
If you were in control of Newcastle, who would you sign? Please share your thoughts in the comments area.
“That is what challenges me: I have to force my way back in. Of course, I’d like to see more playing time, so I’m giving it my all in practice.
“Of course, if I don’t play, I won’t be content. Of course, I aspire to be a regular starter for a major league club. But that’s not to suggest I’m frantic to go if I don’t get 10 or 15 games under my belt before Christmas.
“Football is a fast-paced sport with a lot of ups and downs. To make a conclusion, I need to consider the big picture.” Prior to the international break, Werner had forced his way back into Chelsea’s starting lineup with back-to-back Premier League starts against Manchester City and Southampton, both of whom he scored against.
While on service with Germany, he scored a brace in a 4-0 World Cup qualifying win against North Macedonia to help his side qualify for the tournament in Qatar.
In addition to Newcastle, Werner’s homeland of Bayern Munich has emerged as a possible next club in recent weeks.
