Chelsea forward Timo Werner may allegedly already be on his way out of Stamford Bridge just one year after sealing a move to the club.
The attacker is understood to be prepared to leave the English giants if he continues to feel unwanted, though he is also willing to carry on fighting for his place in the German manager Thomas Tuchel’s side, according to a recent report from 90min.
“Werner is not unhappy at Chelsea, far from it – but he also knows the club are looking at a new striker so if he has to move on, he is prepared to do so,” a source told 90min.
The report also states that Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain are watching Werner’s situation, though the star’s preference may be for a return to his home country.
Chelsea supporters will have mixed feelings about this particular piece of transfer information, with some Blues fans likely to think he is worth keeping around for a bit longer.
Timo shone at the Bundesliga outfit RB Leipzig and it was a shock when he failed to get going in his maiden season at Chelsea, but it may be that he will soon get back to his best.
The fact that the 25-year-old star is now being linked with such elite clubs could perhaps serve as a warning sign that the Blues should think twice about letting Timo go.
The Bianconeri could consider bringing in a younger forward to replace the living legend Cristiano Ronaldo, who will turn 37 next campaign, while the Argentine star Paulo Dybala has also gone a little off the boil.
The Parisians, meantime, have a world-class attack containing the likes of Kylian Mbappe and Neymar, though the Frenchman is in the final year of his deal.
One imagines a player like Timo could fare a lot better in Ligue 1 or Serie A in comparison to the faster and more physical Premier League.
Elsewhere, Italian journalist and transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has rejected reports that Arsenal are closing in on the landing of Chelsea forward Tammy Abraham.
The 23-year-old Englishman is expected to depart Stamford Bridge during this summer’s transfer market, and a host of clubs, including David Moyes’ West Ham United and former club Aston Villa, have been linked with a move.
