chelsea, timo werner

Chelsea are willing to discuss the summer sale of Timo Werner to Borussia Dortmund, who may be in need of replacing the in-demand and brilliant Erling Haaland in the transfer window

Werner was one of the most deadly strikers in world football during his time in the Bundesliga and that goal-scoring ability prompted the Blues to make a move and bring him to the Premier League in a deal worth £47 million

However, The German has struggled in front of goal since switching the Bundesliga for the Premier League almost two seasons ago and has largely found himself sitting on the bench or playing out wide under Thomas Tuchel

Having notched 95 goals in 159 games for RB Leipzig, his goal-scoring prowess will still be relatively fresh in the memory of Bundesliga fans, however, with his pace and tireless work rate commanding a £47.5m transfer fee less than two years ago.

According to Sky Germany, Dortmund are weighing up an offer that could call time on Werner’s Chelsea frustration.

Dortmund are virtually certain to pursue a new marquee striker, with Erling Haaland poised to play a starring role in the summer transfer market when his £62m release clause becomes active.

Look, Werner is a brilliant young striker that should be a superstar for the club , but it has just not worked and honestly, a move away may be the best thing for his career.

It is a shame that this move has not really worked out, we had big hopes for the lad
