Timo Werner to hold showdown talks with Thomas Tuchel over Chelsea future amid Dortmund interest

TIMO WERNER wants showdown talks with Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel over his future at the club.

The German striker has struggled to score after moving to Stamford Bridge at the beginning of last season.

Werner has managed just seven Premier League goals in a Chelsea shirt but has been a part of the squad that won the Champions League, Club World Cup and European Super Cup.

A move back to his homeland seems likely with Borussia Dortmund interested in the 25-year-old.

However, his high wages could prove a stumbling block for the club sitting second in the Bundesliga table.

Therefore, the former RB Leipzig man may have to take a pay cut to force a move away.

Werner’s representatives are set to meet with Chelsea officials in the approaching weeks to discuss their future, according to GOAL.com.

He has become a frustrated figure at Stamford Bridge due to his lack of game time and being kept out the side by the likes of Kai Havertz and Romelu Lukaku.

He made Chelsea’s first of the night, scored the equaliser then set up Lukaku for a tap in that proved to be the winning goal.

His performance was recognised by Tuchel who said, “Timo played very well.”
