REPORTS: Borussia Dortmund is keeping tabs on Chelsea Striker Timo Werner

Chelsea Transfer News: According to recent reports, Borussia Dortmund is now in the lead in the competition to sign Chelsea forward Timo Werner this summer

Chelsea Transfer News: According to Fichajes, Bundesliga heavyweights Borussia Dortmund are now in the driver’s seat to sign Chelsea forward Timo Werner during this current transfer window.

The German national was a bona fide star for RB Leipzig, scoring goals left and right like they were nothing. Because of this, Werner was able to get a high-paying transfer to Chelsea two years ago, but he has not been able to maintain his previous level of play at Stamford Bridge.

Werner’s primary position is as a striker; nevertheless, he is versatile enough to play anywhere along the frontline. At the age of 26, he is approaching the peak of his career and should be playing consistently. Werner is not a lock to start up front for Chelsea as Romelu Lukaku has left the club, making him the Chelsea striker with the most experience.


Chelsea Transfer News: What’s the matter?

The current scenario at Chelsea has drawn the attention of Borussia Dortmund, who are interested in signing the player. The heavyweights of the Bundesliga were able to get Sebastien Haller from Ajax Amsterdam despite the departure of Erling Haaland to Manchester City. As a result of the health problem that has now been identified in the Ivory Coast international, Dortmund will need to acquire the services of another striker.

They may have found a player in Werner who is not just successful in the German Bundesliga but also has something to prove to himself and others. The reputation of the 26-year-old player has taken a battering at Stamford Bridge, and with the 2022 FIFA World Cup coming up, he cannot afford to not have a leading position that ensures regular minutes. He must find a new club before the tournament begins.

Werner’s bursts of speed and mobility make him a perfect match for Dortmund’s style of play. He is capable of not just leading the line but also linking up in a front three. This versatility makes him an asset to Dortmund. When the Chelsea attacker returns, he may bring Karim Adeyemi and Jude Bellingham with him, and the three of them might cause a ruckus in the Bundesliga.


What is in store in Werner’s future?

Werner seems to have Thomas Tuchel’s support even though he is not in good form and is not consistent in his performance. Even if there is a large amount of interest in the forward’s services, the manager of Chelsea is determined to maintain hold of him. As a result of Werner’s departure, Tuchel’s team will have just Michy Batshuayi and Armando Borja available to them in the striking position. This decision by Tuchel makes perfect sense.

Since Lukaku is no longer with the team, Chelsea would be wise to place their confidence in Werner. It is not too late for the German international player to turn things around in his career, and getting off to a strong start in the 2022/23 season may do wonders for his self-assurance. The next season at Chelsea might very well be the forward’s last chance to save his career at the club, as he has the skills necessary to be a game-winner but has struggled to get consistent playing time there.
