Saudi money is in town, and clubs will have to start building fences around some of their top players. After the takeover of Newcastle, the club is looking to make a splash in the market and wants to make a statement by bringing in a big-name player to St James Park. They want a move that will send a clear message of their intentions to the fans.
Newcastle currently basks in the lower rungs of the table and will need to do a lot to convince players of star quality to make a move to the struggling club.
The club hasntified a few targets, including actor of football and will now spend the next couple of months working on a plan that will ensure the arrival of these players. One of the players linked to Newcastle is Timo Werner.
Amid the £300 million takeover of Newcastle by a Saudi investment group, the wheels have alreadyd spinning towards reinforcing and turning the club into a major force in English football. The new owners want to barge their way into the party of the big boys, and with an almost endless stream of cash, it looks like there's no holding them back.
One of Chelsea's greatest worries is Timo Werner's lack of goals. Newcastle wants the German, and a few months ago, the fans won't have minded his departure. However, the arrival of Romelu Lukaku may have unlocked the German, who is now looking more assured and confident.
Speaking about the links to Newcastle, Werner said he had to look at the "bigger picture" before he decides on his Chelsea future.
Goals were hard to come by for Timo Werner at Chelsea. Last season he scored 12 goals in 52 matches across all competitions. Of this tally, six came in the league, which is a poor return for a striker who plundered goals for RB Leipzig in Germany. His last haul for the German club was 34 goals in 45 appearances.
His poor returns in the front of goals saw him playing fewer games as he left Chelsea fans frustrated with the easy goals he missed.
He is now the subject of serious interest from the Magpies, with BILD reporting that the club had made contacts with the German's representatives.
Express.de reports via BuliNews that Werner lamented his lack of game time at Chelsea. With the shadow of the big Belgian Romelu Lukaku looming, Werner has had to up his game. He said he fell behind and had to fight his way back but will not be hasty in deciding his future.
Thomas Tuchel has paired Werner and Lukaku in two Premiership matches, which resulted in Werner bagging a goal against Southampton. The German manager claims the two can create a dangerous partnership.
