According to the Guardian, Juventus are considering a loan move for Chelsea striker Timo Werner, with the Germany international seeking playing time ahead of the 2022 World Cup. The 26-year-old has struggled to thrive at Stamford Bridge, scoring just 23 goals in 89 appearances since moving.
After scoring double figures in goals in the four seasons he spent at RB Leipzigmuch was expected of Timo Werner when he signed for chelsea. This was particularly the case after the Germany international thrived as a centre-forward in his final season, scoring 28 goals in the Bundesliga only. But the now 26-year-old has struggled to really make an impact for the Blues, scoring just 23 goals in the two years since signing for the club.
That includes just 11 goals in all competitions last term, down from the 12 goals and 15 assists he managed in his debut season. This combined with interest from Newcastle United and Juventus have seen reports indicate that Chelsea are ready to let Werner go, especially after Rahim Sterlinghas arrived. Not only that, the Guardian reported that the Old Lady is already in talks with Chelsea over a move for Werner with the Serie A giants looking to sign reinforcements.
The club is also in talks with Atlético Madrid on a move for Alvaro Morata but Werner is the alternative option. The German is reportedly ready to leave the club as he wants more playing time ahead of the start of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, but a decision could be difficult given his £275,000-a-week wage. But The Guardian has further reported that Juventus and Newcastle United are considering loans for Werner, although Chelsea could include an option or an obligation to make things permanent.
