EPL: Get rid of him immediately, bring Martinez – Cascarino begs Chelsea
Former Chelsea striker, Tony Cascarino, has urged the Blues to get rid of Timo Werner immediately when the summer transfer window starts.
Cascarino also urged Chelsea to bring Inter Milan’s Lautaro Martinez as Werner’s replacement.
“Chelsea will not win the league until they find a proper finisher. The attacking players they’ve now are top talents in many ways, but they lack a clinical goalscorer. The FA Cup final against Liverpool showed again that they need too many chances to score or not score, as was the case on Saturday. Mason Mount is their leading scorer in the league this season, which is not the way it should be at a club like Chelsea,” Cascarino told The Times.
Cascarino added: “I like the boy Lautaro Martinez at Inter, so I would suggest they offer the Italian club the chance to take Romelu Lukaku back on loan, get rid of Timo Werner, and bring in Martínez.
“He’s the sort of technical, ruthless forward they need. Harry Kane would be ideal for them but I don’t think that is a move he could take seriously given the rivalry with Tottenham.”
Werner joined Chelsea from RB Leipzig in the summer of 2020.
