EPL: Timo Werner ready to dump Chelsea if new striker comes
Timo Werner, a Chelsea striker, is considering leaving the club after only one season at Stamford Bridge, according to 90min.
Werner arrived from RB Leipzig for £53 million last summer, although he only scored six goals in his first Premier League season.
Despite helping Chelsea win the Champions League in May, the 25-year-old striker would be glad to go if the Blues sign another striker this summer.
The Blues’ striker options could be revamped this summer in preparation for their first full season under head coach Thomas Tuchel.
Tuchel does not rate Tammy Abraham, who has already departed to join AC Milan for £1 million.
Since February, Abraham has been effectively exiled by the club, with the teenage forward linked with a move to Arsenal. He was also reportedly offered in a player-plus-cash deal alongside Callum Hudson-Odoi in an initial attempt for Dortmund star Haaland.
