With ‘four European teams’ preparing to swoop in on Timo Werner, Chelsea may be able to cash in.
Since joining Chelsea from RB Leipzig last summer, Timo Werner has been a bit part player.
Timo Werner’s time at Chelsea could be up, with four top European clubs allegedly interested in signing the German striker.
Werner, 25, arrived from Leipzig in a £48 million transfer last summer.
However, the striker has been replaced by record signing Romelu Lukaku after scoring just 14 goals in 60 games at Stamford Bridge.
Express Sport looks at the four clubs interested in signing the pacy striker.
Diego Simeone’s side are short on strikers at the moment, but with Luis Suarez about to turn 35 in June, there could be room for Werner.
Simeone prefers hard-working players, and Werner’s work ethic will be a significant plus for him.
After their pay cap was reduced for the coming season, though, freeing up room in Atletico’s forward contingent will be crucial.
Despite Robert Lewandowski’s ability to age like great wine, Werner built his reputation in the Bundesliga, and there will be a need to replace him in the future.
In his final two years in Leipzig, Werner scored 44 goals in 64 league games, establishing himself as one of Germany’s best strikers.
And if a move to the Bavarian capital materializes, he might easily maintain that record.
Dortmund may potentially join the fight to sign Werner, since their star scorer is expected to leave in the summer.
Erling Haaland, arguably the world’s most wanted prospect at the moment, is apparently expected to leave West Germany this summer when his £68 million release clause kicks in.
And Dortmund will be looking for a proven goal scorer to replace Haaland, which means Werner might be on his way to the Signal Iduna Park.
Werner might be the man to turn things around for Juventus, who are struggling at the moment due to a lackluster strike force.
Paulo Dybala has only scored 22 goals in his last 88 league games, which isn’t good enough, while Alvaro Morata has only scored 13 in 38, which is also a dismal record for a striker.
Werner’s goal ratio at Chelsea isn’t the finest, but a change of location and intensity could help. “Brinkwire News Summary.”
