Werner wants Chelsea exit

Timo Werner wants to leave Chelsea.

There was much fanfare when Werner was signed from RB Leipzig two years ago, but he has failed to adapt to life in the Premier League, and a return of 19 goals in 80 appearances is not what Chelsea bargained for when they paid £47.5 million for his services.

Instead, he starts most matches at Stamford Bridge on the bench these days, with his international teammate Kai Havertz preferred instead of him.

Now he has admitted that “things are not going the way I would like” in West London and he is already planning to leave the club, although when its transfer embargo will be lifted may be dependent on the sale process.

He is under contract at Stamford Bridge until 2025, but Chelsea will not stand in his way  provided that they receive a good offer of £35 million or upwards for the striker.
