Timo Werner has made only two league starts for Chelsea since their 3-2 win over Leeds United in November.

The Germany international was out of action for a month after testing positive for Covid-19 and since regaining full fitness, he has found opportunities hard to come by under Thomas Tuchel.

Hansi Flick, the national team manager, stressed he doesn’t want to give “any advice” to the forward, but admitted his situation at Stamford Bridge is “not satisfactory”.

Werner scored for Germany in their 2-0 friendly win over Israel and after the match, the former RB Leipzig star stated “things are not going the way” he would have liked at the west London club.

Taking the situation at the club into account, Sport1 say the player and his agent, Volker Struth, are ‘already planning to leave’ the Premier League side. His deal lasts until 2025, but Chelsea won’t block his exit, if they were to receive a good offer of around €40m.

It’s even stated Struth is in talks with several clubs and this includes Borussia Dortmund, who are interested in Werner.

However, BVB are ‘still not 100 percent convinced’ over bringing him to the club in the summer. In addition to this, his gross salary of €16m per year can be a ‘major hurdle’ for Dortmund and the attacker’s other suitors.
