Chelsea are reportedly prepared to allow Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech to leave the club.
Both players moved to Stamford Bridge last year, but have struggled to live up to expectations. According to a report, Werner and Ziyech are considered surplus to requirements at Chelsea.
According to Fichajes, Thomas Tuchel is looking to sell the pair next summer as he goes in search of new attacking options.
The report adds that Napoli winger Lorenzo Insigne is on Chelsea’s shortlist and that Werner and Ziyech could make way for the Italian.
Chelsea spent over £80 million on the two players during Frank Lampard’s managerial stint at the club. But, they have struggled for game time under Thomas Tuchel.
No future for Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner at Chelsea?
Ziyech’s time at the club has been coupled with injuries. Consequently, he has struggled to get into the playing XI regularly for Chelsea.
Despite scoring crucial goals against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League, there is a feeling that Tuchel does not quite fancy the Moroccan.
The 28-year-old still has a lot of time as a footballer. But, he may have to move elsewhere to see regular playing time.
Timo Werner arrived from RB Leipzig for £45 million last year. The forward has received heavy criticism for his lack of sharpness in front of the goal. Werner scored just 12 times in 52 appearances across all competitions last term.
Moreover, the 25-year-old’s game-time has been severely impacted by the signing of big-name striker Romelu Lukaku this summer.
There is massive doubt among the Chelsea faithful over Werner’s ability to deliver goals consistently. The striker could be on his way out of the club next year in search of a fresh start.
Timo Werner has scored just 13 goals in 59 appearances. Meanwhile, former Ajax midfielder Hakim Ziyech has been limited to only 16 league starts for Chelsea.
