Rumour Has It: Werner prepared to exit Chelsea this close season

Timo Werner's unproductive spell at Chelsea may be drawing to a close after just one season. The Germany international signed from RB Leipzig last summer for a fee of around €50m but has largely underwhelmed with five goals from 27 Premier League appearances.

Werner eyeing Chelsea exit

Football Insider reports Werner is prepared to quit Chelsea less than 12 months into a bumper five-year contract.

Werner netted 28 Bundesliga goals for RB Leipzig in 2019-20 but that return has drastically fallen since moving to London.

It is said there is a growing expectation that Werner will leave in the next year or two, despite the arrival of countryman Thomas Tuchel, which has led to a slight upturn in form.
