Timo Werner could be leaving Chelsea as German heavyweights Bayern Munich are interested to sign him. The 25-year-old forward had a difficult time with the Blues despite winning a Champions League last season.
His goalscoring form has decreased drastically as compared to his form at former club, RB Leipzig. Although he has been a part of Chelsea gaffer Thomas Tuchel’s plans, he might be thinking for a reunion with former Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann. Additionally, Chelsea are thinking about a possible swap deal for him with Robert Lewandowski moving to Stamford Bridge.
He has four more years left in his contract. Will he stay at North London or go on to win multiple trophies with Bayern Munich?
A reunion with Nagelsmann on the cards for Chelsea forward Werner?
Timo Werner joined Chelsea from Bundesliga giantkillers RB Leipzig in 2020. Although he bagged some good goals and one hat trick stint while playing under former coach Frank Lampard, his form is not at its best.
However, he has been almost a regular starter under Tuchel. Since his debut, he made 52 appearances scoring 12 goals and assisting 15 times. He also struggled in the Premier League, as most games proved to be much physically demanding.
A Bundesliga return might be an easy option for him as Nagelsmann is interested to work with him. According to Football Insider, the Bavarians are keen on signing him.
At Leipzig, he was one of the most clinical strikers and Nagelsmann was a big fan of the player. About his situation at Chelsea, in January the tactician said,
“He always played there, even when he made a meterless in training. At Chelsea, he is one of many stars and has to work on certain things.”
Werner would be a younger option for them and it may lead to Robert Lewandowski looking for an alternative club. Thus, as an alternative for Erling Haaland, the Premier League giants could sign Lewandowski.
