Transfers – Werner, “the ex-lethal weapon” is rusty at Chelsea, but only asks to draw again

He had to be the present, but above all the future of the Blues attack. Landed with great fanfare in London for more than fifty million euros, Timo Werner has so far never justified the colossal investment of Londoners, a little over two years ago. Surgical on German lawns, the 26-year-old striker is only a shadow of himself with the Blues.

Mocked for his many failures, sometimes grotesque, scorer only 11 times in 50 games last season, the German international is struggling to fit into the Londoners’ game plan, especially since the arrival of Thomas Tuchel. Not particularly comfortable in the construction phases, Werner skates and can only very little exploit his qualities of speed and shifting through his courses.

Above all, the player struggled to settle permanently in the eleven of the Blues, toting right, left on the front of the attack according to his performance and the various transfers of the Blues. If Thomas Tuchel has openly claimed to want to keep his compatriot, for lack of offensive solutions, the departure of Werner today seems inevitable. A necessity for almost every party.

Is Lukaku’s return to Chelsea the biggest flop in Premier League history?

An audience of choice suitors, but…

Because it’s clearly summer or never to change the air for the advent-center. Although he has recently shown that he is not afraid of competition at Chelsea, the Stuttgart native is heading well for the exit. Barely 26, the striker has no shortage of courtiers, always aware and intrigued of the potential to be exploited, but who are waiting for an offer.

Interested for a long time, Juventus Turin and AC Milan have never been aggressive in the race to sign the player. Same story as Newcastle, the new rich in world football, in search of a cutting-edge striker with references, but who has still not drawn.

In search of an additional element to blow Karim Benzema, like almost every year, Real Madrid has also come to the information to attach the services of Werner, as reported Mark Start of the week. However, if all these potential destinations have something to seduce, “Turbo Timo” needs guarantees and seems to favor a completely different destination.

The growing temptation to return home

And it is obviously on the side of Germany that the future of the German international seems to be written. A time quoted at Borussia Dortmund, then in search of the successor of Erling Haaland, the trigger could possibly find the club which allowed him to hatch in the eyes of the general public.

Indeed, for the past few weeks, rumors have been rife and are becoming more and more insistent on a return from the native of Stuttgart to RB Leipzig. Eager to (re)find a suitable environment to relaunch, Werner has made a return to the Red Bull Arena his priority as reported by the German press, Kicker and Image on your mind.

While the formation of Domenico Tedesco has mainly trusted the Portuguese André Silva as a striker with the now inevitable Christopher Nkunku as a free electron and main danger, the RB would welcome the return of “the child prodigy”. What offer a new range of possibilities to the Italian coach. In any case, Werner’s profile perfectly suits the technician’s tactical ambitions.

In Leipzig, Werner should inevitably find playing time. Crucial data, especially a few months before the World Cup in Qatar, which the player had mentioned in an interview with the Daily mail a few days ago. “It’s clear that I want and that I should play more to have a chance to go to the World Cup and especially to play there.”

But more than time on the field, it’s the confidence that the German international needs. And Werner seems ready to make a lot of sacrifices to find the Rotenbullen, especially in terms of salary. And if there is a club that can give him wings at the right time, it is RB Leipzig.
