Chelsea board told ‘£100m and Timo Werner’ and talks can happen over record-breaking Stamford Bridge signing
Eurosport’s Dean Jones, speaking on The Football Terrace podcast, thinks Chelsea could tempt Borussia Dortmund by offering Timo Werner plus cash for Erling Haaland.
It is no secret that Chelsea are very keen on adding a striker to that attack this summer, and there has been much speculation in media that Haaland is the number on transfer target Haaland
Having made a name for himself over at Borussia Dortmund, Haaland is now one of the very best, most dangerous, and most sought after players in world football and he is constantly in the headlines.
It has been reported recently that Roman Abramovic has even released funds in order to get a deal done, believing that the German outfit will allow Haaland to leave for a fee of around £150 million.
And with Haaland being the Blues’ number one target this summer, Werner could be offered to try and drive down Dortmund’s asking price, it has been claimed
Jones said: “Being honest, there aren’t too many players I think would tempt Dortmund into doing it. I actually think the only one that fits in is Timo Werner.
“If you were to offer £100m and Timo Werner, then maybe there’s a conversation to be had there.”
Look, football is all about the money, so if Chelsea offer the right amount of money, Dortmund will have to accept as they risk losing their star man for just £69 million next summer
Werner is a very highly-rated striker that is not built for the Premier League or to lead this Chelsea attack, Haaland is. So if the reports are true and Chelsea are seeking to let Werner leave, it would be a very good decision from the squad.
This is a rumour that fans are very interested in and it will be very interesting to see how this develops over the next few months
