Timo Werner is yet to fully establish himself at Chelsea, where he arrived from RB Leipzig in 2020.
The forward finished his debut season with 12 goals and 15 assists, which includes six league goals. This term, he has two goals and an assist in eight matches.
Earlier this month, the 25-year-old admitted the past few weeks have been difficult for him at the west London club. He also stressed the need to look at the big picture before making a decision on his future.
Having managed to score a goal every 132 minutes with RB Leipzig, the German needs in excess of 300 minutes to find the back of the net for the Blues.
Sky Deutschland’s transfer expert Marc Behrenbeck has advised Werner to leave the Champions League winners, if his situation doesn’t improve throughout the course of the season.
“The plan is that he doesn’t change next summer. You understand that too. At Chelsea, he is actually in good hands at the moment. But if it continues like this, he actually has to change [clubs],” Behrenbeck said.
The journalist fears Werner’s situation could be similar to the one Tammy Abraham experienced with Chelsea last season.
“He [Abraham] was a huge talent. He was let go and someone new was brought in. Last season, Werner only scored six times in the Premier League. That is exactly the Abraham quota. This is too little. One has to wait and see how it turns out,” Behrenbeck explained.
“Timo Werner would like to stay – also in the Premier League. At the moment, Chelsea are so closed that they don’t want to get rid of him. Of course, that could look different next summer.”
