Timo Werner ready to ‘reassess’ Chelsea future as agency switch fuels Bayern speculation

Timo Werner ready to ‘reassess’ Chelsea future as agency switch fuels Bayern speculation

 

Word stemming from the English media on Thursday evening suggests that Timo Werner could soon seek out an exit from Chelsea.

Blues stint

German hitman Werner of course made the move to Stamford Bridge in the summer of 2020, on the back of another scintillating campaign in his home country, with RB Leipzig.

All told, though, the 25-year-old’s Premier League experience has since proven a hit-and-miss one.

Werner, to his credit, is now a European champion, after playing a central role in Chelsea marching all the way to Champions League glory back in May.

And though his work-rate, attitude and even, surprisingly, creative exploits have proven of the highest standard whilst a Blue, the attacker has come in for deserved criticism for regular profligacy in front of goal.

Werner, across 52 appearances in all competitions in 2020/21, managed to find the net on a paltry 12 occasions.

Such woes, meanwhile, have since continued into the new campaign, with the German having notched just a solitary goal across seven outings thus far.

Bayern bound?

As such, it goes without saying that those in a position of power at Stamford Bridge have likely been left disappointed by the return on a considerable €53 million investment.

If the latest word doing the rounds in the media on Thursday evening is anything to go by, though, in the not-so-distant future, the Chelsea hierarchy may in fact be seeking out a return on their under-performing frontman.

This comes amid claims that Werner himself is ready to ‘reassess’ his future in West London.

As per the reliable Matt Law of the Daily Telegraph, the 25-year-old is growing increasingly concerned with his lack of game-time over the early weeks of the new season, having been afforded starts in just two of Chelsea’s six Premier League outings.

In turn, if the situation does not improve over the months ahead, Werner appears ready to seek out a Pensioners exit.

Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich are one club understood to be interested in the attacker’s services, with Julian Nageslmann, who previously oversaw the finest form of Werner’s career whilst at RB Leipzig, now of course at the helm in Bavaria.

Not only that, but adding further fuel to the fire when it comes to a potential Allianz Arena switch was the German’s recent decision to link up with Sports360 agency – the same firm as his ex-boss.
