Timo Werner joined the Stamford Bridge team in the summer of 2020 for £ 50 million but has so far failed to meet the club’s expectations. The 26-year-old striker has only scored 23 goals and provided 21 assists in 89 appearances for “The Blues”, a number that is too small for what Chelsea expected. With the arrival of Raheem Sterling and recent conflicts with manager Thomas Tuchel, Werner’s future at Chelsea becomes even more uncertain.
Timo Werner is likely to leave Chelsea this summer
Although he can no longer maintain the high level of performance as in the shirt of RB Leipzig, but Timo Werner is a “hot commodity” in the transfer market when many clubs are interested. According to journalist Christian Falk, Newcastle is the latest team to join the race for the signature of the German striker next to Juventus.
Coach Eddie Howe is looking for a quality face in attack to join him in conquering Newcastle’s ambitions in the new season. In the hands of the current English coach, there is no striker who can meet expectations when Callum Wilson is often injured, and Chris Wood is not a quality name for the fans to trust. And Werner is seen as a suitable option to solve the current problems in the attack of “The Magpies”.
With the interest of Timo Werner, Newcastle will face stiff competition from Juventus, when the Italian team also wants to have the service of the German striker. However, coach Max Allegri only sees Werner as a backup plan if they cannot recruit Alvaro Morata. The Italian coach still considers Morata a priority transfer target when this player has many years of experience playing for Juventus and is in line with the football philosophy that he set out.
Meanwhile, Werner has been offered to his former club RB Leipzig as part of a player exchange for defender Nordi Mukiele, when Chelsea are looking to “snatch” from PSG. However, it is widely reported that RB Leipzig are only interested in bringing Werner back to the Bundesliga on loan for a season.
