Where does Timo Werner stand with Chelsea?

Timo Werner will have to consider his future at Chelsea if he is unable to establish a regular spot in the team.

The German forward has found it rather tough to reclaim his starting spot since Romelu Lukaku’s arrival from Inter Milan. Lukaku has now convincingly become their new first-choice striker.

The former RB Leipzig man had a torrid 2020-21 campaign. However, he still managed to see off the season with a respectable 12 goals and 15 assists from 52 games in all tournaments. 

The Belgian’s arrival has seen the 25-year-old slip down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge. He has only started two of the Blues’ six Premier League games so far this term.

Werner was an unused substitute in Chelsea’s 1-0 loss to Juventus. Thomas Tuchel chose to send Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Ross Barkley, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Trevoh Chalobah after Federico Chiesa’s opener.

Timo Werner was one of the most used players last term. But the forward has been “overlooked” in starting selections.

Timo Werner, if he moves from Chelsea, could be part of yet another striker “merry-go-round” involving the likes of Kylian Mbappé, Robert Lewandowski, and Erling Haaland

Werner still wants to stay though, He is ready to fight for his place in West London. Nonetheless, he could head back to Germany if he does in fact call time on his Blues career.

The striker remains on contract with Chelsea until 2025. He made the switch to Stamford Bridge for around £47,700,000 in 2020.

If this trend continues, he will be forced to contemplate an early exit from Chelsea if he fails to force his way back into Tuchel’s starting lineup.
