Author of two disappointing first seasons at Chelsea, German center-forward Timo Werner could be back at RB Leipzig, his former club, according to the English press.
Two years later, Timo Werner has still not confirmed the hopes placed in him. The 26-year-old striker, eternal hope of German football, could leave Chelsea to find his former club RB Leipzig, announces the Daily Mail . The daily recalls that the player’s behavior off the field would annoy his coach Thomas Tuchel in particular . As a reminder, he was transferred in the summer of 2020 for 53 million euros.
In 89 games for the Blues, Werner scored 23 goals with 21 assists. Last season, for example, he only scored 4 goals in the Premier League. He still has a Champions League on his list, won in 2021 against Manchester City, and remains a starter in the national team.
But Leipzig is not the only destination considered for the former Stuttgart striker. He would have been offered to Juventus as part of an operation to bring Matthijs De Ligt to London. But the Dutch central defender has since signed with Bayern Munich . Information confirmed in Italy by Sky Sport , which adds that Chelsea are open to a three-year loan from the end of his contract, although his salary could be a problem.
Still estimated at 35 million euros, Timo Werner would also have touches at Borussia Dortmund, the German press reported in March. But the BvB seems to have already compensated for the departure of Haaland with the arrivals of Karim Adeyemi and Sébastien Haller , whose future is nevertheless dashed after learning that he was suffering from a tumor in the testicles.
