Blues fans told £54 million striker ‘will be at Chelsea’ this summer window ahead of possible new arrival
Chelsea will not sell Timo Werner this summer but he may be used differently to how fans will expect.
After seeing the German striker net an impressive 34-goals in the Bundesliga, Chelsea made sure that they were the club to sign up Werner
But The German striker endured a tough first season in the Premier League having found the net just six times in 35 appearances, and there has been alot of speculation that the club are open to letting him leave the club
It has been claimed that Thomas Tuchel is desperate to splash the cash to try and secure a transfer deal for the impressive Erling Haaland, who is now regarded as one of the most deadly strikers in world football
However, John Barnes doesn’t see Chelsea giving up on Werner but Thomas Tuchel may decide not to play him as a striker in the new season.
Barnes told Bonus Code Bets: “Chelsea will persevere with Timo Werner, but not as a No.9. He’s creative, he’s quick, but if you want someone to score 30 goals a season, it’s not him.
“Chelsea won’t look to play him as a centre forward. They’ll probably look to bring in a centre forward, but they will persevere with Werner because he can add value to the team.”
If Chelsea do keep hold of Werner this summer it will be interesting to see just how the club use him, as he is not the forward that they had hoped would net 30-goals a season
