Chelsea under pressure to solve Timo Werner future amid Liverpool’s Darwin Nunez masterclass.
Could Timo Werner be leaving Chelsea soon? That’s a murky subject that hasn’t received much attention during the summer transfer window.
Earlier this year, there were rumors that the German might be allowed to leave, but since then, nothing has been said about it. Werner’s lack of playing time under Thomas Tuchel last season has him publicly disgruntled. The 25-year-old has said on a few times that he wants to play more.
Unfortunately, throughout the season, Tuchel has had a lot of attackers to manage and give enough playing time to. When there is a constant need for change, it can be challenging to identify the front three that performs at the highest level.
The Blues must secure Werner for the upcoming season due to attacking strength improvements at both Liverpool and Man City. Romelu Lukaku is already gone for them.
Timo Werner has said that he is unsure of his future. He remarked in I a statement to the Daily Mail: “It’s difficult to say (if clear the air talks are needed). First and foremost, my happiness is the most crucial factor. 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.”
The Blues and Premier League rivals Manchester City and Liverpool will be as closely matched as possible, according to Thomas Tuchel, who has expressed his intention to do so. He will require more than a full squad to accomplish this.
Chelsea currently don’t have many possibilities to fill the position of number 9. The manager has a few options for this role, but it would involve working in an unusual manner. On their preseason tour, Michy Batshuayi, Timo Werner, Kai Havertz, and Raheem Sterling were named by Tuchel as being available to play as a nine.
Although neither Havertz nor Sterling are natural strikers, they both possess a strong eye for goal. Since 2018, Batshuayi has been absent from Chelsea on loan after loan, and he is favored to leave again soon.
The only forward left in the game who knows what it takes to score 30+ goals per season is Timo Werner. He has not yet attained these levels at Chelsea, but he has made progress in his Premier League acclimatization since then.
Erling Haaland, a prolific young goal scorer, was acquired by Manchester City, and Liverpool matched their zeal by acquiring Darwin Nunez from Benfica.
Despite having a wild preseason, Nunez found the back of the net four times during Liverpool’s friendly match against RB Leipzig. Chelsea will need a solution if he can maintain this form in the Premier League.
Timo Werner played nearly half as many minutes for club and country last season but still managed to score 11 goals and provide 6 assists. There are signs that the striker is making progress, but will they be sufficient to hold down the fort for Chelsea the next year? There is room for growth, but Tuchel is praised as a brilliant coach; undoubtedly, he can get one more performance out of the player.
