Timo Werner ready to dump Chelsea if new striker comes

  Chelsea striker, Timo Werner, is looking to quit the club after only one season at Stamford Bridge, 90min reports. Werner joined from RB Leipzig last summer for £53m, but finished his debut Premier League campaign with just six goals. Despite playing a key role as the Blues lift the Champions League trophy in May, the 25-year-old would be happy to move on if Chelsea bring in another striker this summer. This summer could see the Blues revamp their striker options before their first full season under head coach Thomas Tuchel. Olivier Giroud has already left to join AC Milan for £1m, while Tammy Abraham is not fancied by Tuchel. Abraham has virtually been exiled by the club since February, with the young forward linked with a move to Arsenal. He was also reported...

Chelsea Ready to sell Timo Werner after Giroud’s exit

  Chelsea is ready to sell Timo Werner this summer, according to Sky Germany. The Blues have been touting the 25-year-old to top European clubs, in a bid to find a potential suitor. Should Werner leave, Chelsea is planning to use the money to fund their pursuit of Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland. Chelsea will need to stump up to £150 million for Haaland. Haaland has scored 57 goals in 59 games since arriving at Dortmund 18 months ago. New Blues boss, Thomas Tuchel, is looking to bolster his attack ahead of his first full season in charge. Tuchel had to endure the patchy form of Timo Werner in his first six months, having frozen Tammy Abraham out of his team. The Blues have already sold Olivier Giroud to AC Milan.

Asked whether England can win the Euros this year, Werner told Sky Sports: “Yes, I think so!

Werner Reveals Team-mates’ Prediction as he Ends Chelsea Goal Drought

The Germany international had not scored in 14 games for club or country before his winner at London Stadium Timo Werner says Chelsea team-mates Callum Hudson-Odoi and Tammy Abraham predicted he would score after the German ended his 12-game goal drought with the winner at West Ham. The Germany international converted Ben Chilwell’s low cross in the first half at London Stadium as Thomas Tuchel's side secured a vital win that puts them three points clear of the Hammers in fourth place. It was Werner’s ninth goal in all competitions for Chelsea this season but his first since a 2-0 win over Newcastle in February, with the striker celebrating by pointing to Hudson-Odoi and Abraham on the substitutes' bench.

EPL: Tuchel makes Chelsea history after 1-0 win at West Ham

Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, made history on Saturday, as he extended his unbeaten run away from home to 10 matches, following a 1-0 win over West Ham. Tuchel only replaced Blues legend Frank Lampard in January. Since then, the 47-year-old has not lost a single game on the road. Chelsea took on the Hammers in a London Derby, looking to seal a spot in the top four. Timo Werner opened scoring just before half time, tucking away Ben Chilwell’s low cross. The Blues eased to victory in the dying stages of the game, as West Ham’s defender Fabian Balbuena was shown a straight red card for a tackle on Chilwell.

Werner Gives Chelsea Vital Win at 10-man West Ham

Timo Werner's first-half strike helped strengthen Chelsea's grip on the top four with a 1-0 win at West Ham, who saw Fabian Balbuena controversially sent off after a VAR intervention. Chelsea's winner came just before half-time through Werner's first Premier League goal since mid-February, finishing off at close range from Ben Chilwell's low cross (43). The game opened up in the second half as Werner missed a fine chance to double his tally, turning wide at close range from a rebound, and West Ham were reduced to 10 men with a baffling dismissal as Balbuena's studs caught Chilwell's calf after following through with a clearance. After referee Chris Kavanagh consulted the pitchside monitor to view the incident, which seemed an unavoidable action from the West Ha...

EPL: Why I’m Struggling at Chelsea – Timo Werner

  Chelsea striker, Timo Werner, has revealed why he is struggling at Stamford Bridge this season. Werner has so far scored just five goals in 30 appearances in the Premier League for Chelsea this season. The 25-year-old joined Chelsea last summer transfer window from Red Bull Leipzig but has yet to recapture his previous stunning form at the Bundesliga side. The Germany international is now saying that ‘crazy stuff’ in his head has contributed to his Chelsea struggles but feels he is in the right place mentally to succeed now. “I don’t think I missed the quality to score goals in maybe a half year. When I first came to Chelsea in the first 12 games, I had eight goals, so it was nearly the same as in Leipzig,” Werner told the club’s Youtube channel. “Then there co...

Werner caused City problems with his runs in behind and laid on the match-winning assist for Hakim Ziyech in the second half. The German international has come under much criticism for his struggles in front of goal, but former Newcastle striker Shearer was hugely impressed by his efforts. “It was a brilliant run from Werner and Ziyech just has to put it in the back of the net,” Shearer told the BBC. “We said about Werner before the game, we highlighted some of the sitters he’s missed this season but that’s why he was in the team today. “That’s why he was asked to play on the last defender to run in behind because he knew City...

Erling Haaland Names 7 Strikers that are Better Than him

Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland has named seven strikers in world football that are currently better than him. According to Haaland, the seven forwards who clearly outperform him at present are Juventus’ Cristiano Ronaldo, Tottenham’s Harry Kane, Man City’s Kun Agüero, Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski, Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino and Chelsea’s Timo Werner. The 20-year-old chose them in an interview with a Norwegian outlet, the ‘Verdens Gang’.

Paul Merson Names Chelsea’s Most Important Player

  Arsenal legend, Paul Merson, has identified Mason Mount as Chelsea’s most important player. There were fears that the England International will lose his position to either Kai Havertz, Timo Werner when Chelsea brought them in from Germany during the transfer market last summer. However, Mason, Chelsea’s academy product, has proved to be a major player in the team and has cemented a regular playing time under Thomas Tuchel. And Paul Merson spoke highly of Mount and rates him better than Timo Werner and Kai Havertz. “Look how much money Chelsea spent on Kai Havertz and Timo Werner and they are nowhere near as important as Mount,” Merson wrote in his “He’s the go-to man now, and that’s phenomenal at his age.
