Chelsea striker Timo Werner is reportedly unhappy at the club and would be happy to leave if the chance arises.
Timo Werner moved from German club RB Leipzig to Stamford Bridge last summer for a fee of £53 million. Chelsea faced fierce competition from fellow Premier League side Liverpool over the acquisition of the 25-year-old german striker. Bayern Munich were also interested in signing the German but wanted to wait one more season when his release clause at Leipzig would be £35m
The 25-year-old didn't hit the ground running in his first season at Stamford Bridge. Werner was wasteful in front of goal in his first season at the club and only managed 12 goals across all competitions for the Blues last season. The german also provided 15 assists in all competitions bringing his total goal contribution to 27.
The German was also instrumental for Chelsea last season as the London side beat bookmakers' odds to lift the UEFA Champions League.
However, the Blues are not impressed with Werner's numbers in front of goal and want to bring at least one high-profile striker to the London club.
Betpack reported that Chelsea are looking to sign Robert Lewandowski from Bayern Munich if they fail in their £150 million pursuit of Borrusia Dortmund striker Haaland.
According to 90MIN, The German striker is unhappy with Chelsea's desire to bring in a new striker this summer. Reports suggest Werner's representatives have made contact with Borrusia Dortmund to let them know he would be open to being a part of the Haaland move to Chelsea.
