Chelsea are now prepared to swap Tino Werner with RB Leipzig defender as the player is ready to take a pay-cut.
According to rumors, RB Leipzig is eager to re-sign Chelsea attacker Timo Werner after the clubs discussed trading Josko Gvardiol.
The German Werenr arrived at Stamford Bridge after a strong season with the Bundesliga team, but he has struggled to regain his form there.
Due to his lack of playing time, the forward scored just four Premier League goals in 21 appearances the previous season.
This summer, Werner’s future has been called into question after he earlier acknowledged that he might depart the team.
He earlier stated, “It is evident that I want to play more and that I should play more in order to be in top shape for the World Cup—as well as to have a chance to participate.
“First and foremost, my happiness is the most important thing. When I play and score goals, I am thrilled. This is a fact. I should focus on that, and the other things will take care of themselves.
I could be content wherever. Why I’ve had trouble getting game time is difficult to explain.
“I didn’t inquire, but I believe that it goes without saying that the manager always has different ideas, thoughts, and needs for various games. I believe that in many games, I was not in his thoughts, so I work to rectify that.
It is evident that I need and want to play more games in order to improve my condition for the World Cup and increase my chances of competing there.
Since then, Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio has claimed that RB Leipzig is eager to move for their former striker and prepared to make a permanent transfer deal.
Werner is less likely to be loaned out by Chelsea now that Juventus and Newcastle United are attempting to sign him initially on a temporary basis.
Additionally, Partrick Berger’s reports from Germany claim that Chelsea is particularly interested in RB Leipzig’s Gvardiol.
The 20-year-old and Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel have already spoken on the phone about a potential transfer to Stamford Bridge this summer, but the club has no plans to allow the defender depart.
While the German wants to quit Chelsea, Berger has revealed that a meeting has taken place between his former and present employers.
The 25-year-old is reportedly eager to return to RB Leipzig and is prepared to accept a significant pay reduction to do so.
Chelsea is disappointed to learn that a trade involving Gvardiol is “no topic.”
As Tuchel wants to strengthen his backline this summer, it is unclear if the Blues will pursue the Croatian in a separate move.
Brighton’s Marc Cucurella appears to be headed for Stamford Bridge, with Chelsea prepared to meet his £50 million asking price as the Premier League season gets underway this weekend.
Werner’s terrible goal-scoring streak at Chelsea could come to an end if he follows fellow forward Romelu Lukaku out the exit.
