In a recent report, SPORT1 revealed that Timo Werner wants to leave Chelsea in the summer. It is understood that the German attacker has been left frustrated with the lack of game time under Thomas Tuchel and could part ways with the Blues at the end of this season.
Werner’s Inconsistent Spell At The English Capital Thus Far
Werner has endured an unimpressive campaign at Stamford Bridge as he has struggled to make himself a regular starter in Tuchel’s first team. The 26-year-old has found the back of the net on seven occasions and secured four assists in 28 matches for the West London club this season on all fronts.
The German international has seen game time come at a premium which could be why he is only averaging 1.6 shots, 0.1 key passes and 0.4 dribbles per 90 minutes in Premier League football. However, he has even distributed the ball relatively well after completing 78.1% of his attempted passes in top-flight football (stats via whoscored).
Should Chelsea Head Coach Thomas Tuchel Cut Werner Loose This Summer?
Werner is blessed with electric pace which he can use to beat his marker out on the wide areas. He proved his worth as a natural finisher during his time in Germany and is versatile enough to play anywhere across the frontline. However, things have just not fallen in place for the German sensation at Stamford Bridge so far. Werner needs a change of scenery so that he can find some form and get his career back on track.
Hence, Chelsea should think about cutting him loose during the summer transfer window. Werner has fallen behind Romelu Lukaku and Kai Havertz in Tuchel’s pecking order. Furthermore, he has found it difficult to cope with the physical nature and high intensity of English football.
However, at 26, the former Bundesliga talent still has plenty of time to turn his fortunes around for the better while playing for a new club in the coming seasons. The West London outfit can also benefit from cashing in on Werner and using the money generated from his sale to strengthen other areas of their match-day squad.
