RB Leipzig starlet Timo Werner has revealed he is keen to move to one of Europe’s top clubs and would consider offers from Man United, Arsenal, Real Madrid and finally, Chelsea. Werner has been on fire of late, with many fans, ready to consider him as the main striker for Germany in next year’s World Cup.
Indeed, since moving to Leipzig last summer, Timo Werner has upped his game to a whole new level now. The young attacker scored an impressive 21 goals in his first season with die Roten-Bullen – which is seven more than he managed in his entire Stuttgart career(103 matches).
This season, the young forward has already chipped in with three Bundesliga goals in three matches and is now one of the hottest prospects in the Bundesliga.
Of late, Chelsea has struggled to find a proper attacking belligerence upfront. Even though Alvaro Morata is slowly starting to find the back of the net, his slow integration with the Blues signals the fact that there’s something missing in the attack for Antonio Conte’s men. With lack of players who could go in behind the opposition defence, Timo Werner will make perfect sense for Chelsea.
Werner is fast, and his qualities on the ball is very good. He has the ability to skip past challenges, which lends him an advantage over the opposition in the final third. At Leipzig, the 21-year-old features alongside Yussuf Poulsen in a two-man frontline for RB Leipzig. His decision-making in the final third has improved a lot this season.
His finishing is what makes him such a sought-after talent in European football. Werner is lethal when it comes to converting chances but the long-range efforts are the only real drawback from his game.
When he first joined the much hated Bundesliga side, Werner was highly accused of being selfish in his game, but recent performances have shown that he learned to play in a cohesive unit like RB Leipzig.
Timo Werner has already made an impression in the Bundesliga and it’s about time he makes the next step in his bright looking career. Although Leipzig is in no mood to ship their star players, especially after the recent sale of Naby Keita to Liverpool, the Bundesliga newcomers could face a daunting task of holding on to Werner and Forsberg for next season.
