Chelsea ‘to allow’ £400,000-a-week superstars leave Stamford Bridge in the summer
Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech could be set for some summer exits from Chelsea at the end of the season, according to the latest reports.
Werner and Ziyech were two big signings for Chelsea last season when Frank Lampard was handed over £200 million to spend on new players, but despite all the hype and excitement around their arrivals, they have now shone like many had hoped.
Werner is in a race against time to show his worth to Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel, who is set to finalise his summer transfer plans in the coming days, according to the Evening Standard.
Tuchel is reportedly keen on both Sergio Aguero and Erling Haaland, which leaves the misfiring Werner with an uncertain future.
The £45million signing from RB Leipzig has managed just two goals in his last 29 appearances, and while Chelsea are not actively looking to sell him, Werner could be allowed to leave if funds are required for Tuchel’s targets.
And Spanish publication AS have claimed that Ziyech could also be a player that is allowed to leave the club at the end of the season.
The Blues are eager to generate funds for further additions through summer sales, with Tammy Abraham and Tiemoue Bakayoko among the others that could be offloaded.
Look, both players are getting big money to do a good job for Chelsea, and they are simply not doing that, so if Tuchel believes that he can take the club forward without these two in the squad next season, they he is rightfully considering letting the pair go.
However, we are massive fans of the pair and firmly believe that Werner will come good, he is just taking his time getting going in the Premier League.
But lets see what happens, it will be some big decisions to let the pair leave the club.
