In a recent report by Marca, Chelsea’s star striker Timo Werner is on Barcelona’s radar for the January transfer window. Barcelona are looking to add a striker to their team after Sergio Aguero’s unfortunate injury and the search has led them to the Premier League giants with Timo Werner being a top transfer target. The German striker has found it difficult to settle here in England and hasn’t been able to find his best form yet. If Luuk De Jong leaves Barcelona in January, they will have to reinforce in the attacking department and a striker is a top priority.
Timo Werner Struggles In The Premier League
Werner arrived at Chelsea last summer from RB Leipzig after netting 96 times for the German side. He experienced a difficult first season and couldn’t live up to the expectations of the Chelsea fans and their manager. Although he made vital contributions to Chelsea’s Champions League run, Werner was guilty of missing a lot of chances. The German has netted only 14 times in 62 appearances for the Blues.
The summer of 2021 saw Chelsea break the bank for Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku. The Belgian has been integrated as a first choice number 9 by Tuchel ahead of Timo Werner. Werner has only started 4 times in the league this season registering only 1 goal. The Chelsea striker has also faced competition from his national teammate Kai Havertz to get into the starting XI. Scoring goals in the Premier League hasn’t been as easy as it was in the Bundesliga for Werner and the striker is still trying to guarantee a starting spot under Tuchel.
Should Chelsea Let Him Go?
Thomas Tuchel prefers a 3-4-2-1 formation and has shown complete faith in his new signing Romelu Lukaku. Chelsea already have stacked up options to play behind Lukaku with the likes of Havertz, Mount, Pulisic, Ziyech, Hudson Odoi and Barkley in the squad. Kai Havertz has also been deployed as a striker sometimes and therefore Werner has struggled to make the cut. Timo Werner has clearly fallen down the pecking order.
The qualities in Werner hasn’t been reflected in his performances for Chelsea but it is believed that he still has what it takes to become a top striker. He is pacy, strong and has a great finish under his belt as seen in his Leipzig days. If Werner fails to catch Tuchel’s eye before January it is understood that Chelsea can consider selling him if they get the right price. Barcelona are struggling financially and to lure the striker away from Stamford Bridge it needs to be an attractive offer and therefore it remains to be seen if Barce go for Werner in January to solve their attacking issues.
