Chelsea want Aguero
The future of Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has been of much discussion ever since he announced that he would be leaving the club at the end of the season, when his contract expires.
Many clubs have thrown their names into the ring,Â including the likes of Barcelona, Juventus and PSG.
However, it turns out that Chelsea are one of the leading candidates for the Argentine’s signature. Described as ‘winning the arm wrestle’ by top Argentinian source TyC, the Blues are said to be searching for competition for out of form Timo Werner.
The German signed from RB Leipzig has been unable to replicate the same form which set him apart in the Bundesliga, and many times this season both Frank Lampard and new coach Thomas Tuchel have opted for Olivier Giroud or Tammy Abraham over Werner in a central role.
With Giroud’s contract expiring this summer, and Abraham’s future uncertain, the arrival of Aguero would represent a savvy piece of business for the Blues.
Tuchel explains Werner drop
Thomas Tuchel decided to drop Timo Werner for his side’s match against Crystal Palace yesterday, with Kai Havertz instead in from the off. Like Werner, Havertz has struggled for form this season, along with Christian Pulisic.
Both Havertz and Pulisic, though, scored in the 4-1 away win.
Tuchel explained his decision after the match.
“Itâs to do with form and work-rate,” said the Chelsea boss.
“With Timo, we are close to overusing him and thereâs no point in doing that. Christian is in good form so I want to have the competition for the position.
“We havenât made many changes in formation or individual positions but we hope Christian can show up and challenge in an offensive formation.”
Chelsea have now climbed to 4th in the Premier League table, two points above Liverpool, but could yet be overtaken by West Ham should the Hammers beat Leicester this afternoon.
