Timo Werner has been made available by Chelsea this summer.
According to reports, The Blues would not mind parting ways with Werner.
Sky Germany understands that Chelsea might even use Werner as an exchange piece for Erling Haaland. Thomas Tuchel is heavily involved in convincing Haaland into joining them. Whether that will be this summer or the next remains to be seen.
Werner has endured a difficult first season at Chelsea. He arrived with plenty of hype but failed to impress. He even had a mediocre showing in the Euros for Germany, clearly showcasing a loss in quality since leaving RB Leipzig.
Chelsea need a more potent threat up front and might want to cash in on Werner fast. Signing Haaland will be no easy feat. Apart from the wages, BVB has put up a price tag of over £150m if any team wants to sign the forward in this window.
Next summer that price will be halved through Haaland’s release clause. Still, there will be the concern of agent fees and competing against various other European big guns. Werner is still fairly young. He could be given time to turn things around at Stamford Bridge.
