Thomas Tuchel backs out-of-form Timo Werner

Timo Werner has struggled in his first season with Chelsea.

The German forward has scored just six goals in the Premier League campaign who had a big stature in the Bundesliga in his prior seasons with RB Leipzig.

The Blues have been linked with a host of stars namely Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund and former club player Romelu Lukaku.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has insisted that the best is yet to come from the German striker.

“You will not find one manager who will not add a 20-goal striker to his squad. I cannot have enough of them, if you can guarantee that,” Tuchel said to Sky Sports.

“But this is what Chelsea bought, they bought Timo Werner and he is a 20/30-goal striker a year. Now he is struggling a little bit, for the first time in his career.

“I have known him since he was 17. He scored every year in youth football. When he was 16 he played under-18, when he was 17 he played under-19 and he never stopped scoring.

“In any transfer, there are risks of adaptations, change of country, change of mentality. It needs time. It’s not a puzzle where you identify one piece and you go out and find the exact piece, it’s more than that and that’s why there is no rush and no panic.”
