Exclusive: Real Madrid ‘offered Timo Werner and two other players’ as they eye Karim Benzema deputy after Mayoral possible departure.
Karim Benzema’s replacement is wanted by REAL MADRID during the summer transfer window.
According to rumours, the representative for Chelsea striker Timo Werner has given Real Madrid the chance to sign Werner. Karim Benzema is approaching the end of his career, thus the La Liga and Champions League winners need a replacement. Additionally, Edinson Cavani and Edin Dzeko are being taken into account.
Werner was mentioned in connection with Real Madrid during the 2020 summer transfer window.
The Germany international, however, made the decision to leave RB Leipzig for Chelsea on that particular occasion after being fascinated by Frank Lampard’s vision at Stamford Bridge.
Werner was a Champions League champion in his debut season with the club, but he hasn’t lived up to the hype since then.
The 26-year-old has made 41 appearances in the top tier but only 10 Premier League goals, frequently blowing hot and cold under both Lampard and Thomas Tuchel.
Additionally, according to Mundo Deportivo, Werner’s agent has given Real the chance to sign him.
Newcastle and Juventus have also surfaced as prospective suitors for the former Leipzig star, in addition to Madrid.
