Dortmund in the race for Werner as Haaland replacement

Dortmund want to sign Timo Werner next summer as Erling Haaland replacement. According to Daily Mail, Dortmund are already looking at potential replacements for Erling Haaland.

Erling Haaland has a £68 million release clause that triggers next summer. Dortmund executive Michael Zorc believes that Timo Werner is a ‘surprising solution’ for them. Since the arrival of former Chelsea player Romelu Lukaku, Timo Werner has fallen down the pecking order. Moreover, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel views Werner more as a winger than a striker.

Marco Rose’s style of play suits Timo Werner. Meanwhile, Timo Werner earns £17 million a season at Stamford Bridge. If he aspires to play at the Signal Iduna Park he will have to take a major pay cut.

Borussia Dortmund’s domestic rivals Bayern Munich also want to sign Timo Werner. Werner scored an impressive 28 goals in 34 Bundesliga appearances for Leipzig the season before joining Chelsea. Since joining Chelsea, Werner has found it difficult to get back to his goal-scoring form.

This could change at Signal Iduna Park as he would be playing with Jude Bellingham, Donyell Malen, and Giovanni Reyna. Erling Haaland has scored 66 goals in 66 appearances for the club. It is going to be really difficult for anyone that replaces Haaland and Dortmund.

Dortmund have identified three candidates along with Werner to replace Haaland

Dortmund have been looking at Erling Haaland’s replacement. They have shortlisted Inter Milan’s Lautaro Martinez, Borussia Monchengladbach’s Marcus Thuram, and Torino’s Andrea Belotti.

Werner has every skill to fit in at Dortmund. His pace and his impressive track record at RB Leipzig is everything that Dortmund would need. Chelsea would let Werner leave for a much lesser fee than they signed him. But this move would be great for him as he could get back to his goal-scoring form.
