Olivier Giroud has already left for AC Milan. While Tammy Abraham continues to be linked with an outing to a London rival. Tottenham and West Ham have both been credited with interest, but the latest report revealed the possibility of join Arsenal on loan.
That would only leave Michy Batshuayi and Werner returning as Chelsea’s traditional last nine numbers. Although by 90min, Werner could also leave.
They report that the 25-year-old is ‘open’ to the idea of an untimely death Chelsea to take out.
One factor behind his apparent decision is that the club are making no secret of their desire to land an upgrade.
Erling Haaland would be the club’s ideal transfer. Although Dortmund are doubly determined to retain their services after already losing Jadon Sancho this summer.
Nonetheless, Werner is said to be willing to be included in a deal that would see him and Haaland change clubs. It is claimed that his representatives have already ‘touched the ground’ with Dortmund over the idea.
90min cited a source with a development acquaintance who said: “Werner is not unhappy at Chelsea, far from it.
“But he knows the club are considering a new striker. So if he needs to move on, he’s ready to do it.
It is not yet clear whether the thought of receiving Werner as part of a deal for Haaland would twist Dortmund’s arm. A report last week via Football initiate, yet, suggested that they would not be receptive.
