Timo Werner has been linked with a move away from Chelsea, Juventus, Newcastle United, and his former club RB Leipzig the club rumored to be interested in him.
What did Fabrizio Romano say?
The transfer Guru wrote in his column on caught offside, saying: “In my opinion, Werner is a high-level player but he needs a different style of play to shine: because of this, I feel a move to Liverpool instead could have helped him fulfill his potential.
“Unfortunately, Chelsea was quicker at the time, with Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp speaking to the player, but no direct talks between the Reds and RB Leipzig.”
Fabrizio Romano also hinted that Juventus and RB Leipzig are all interested in the 26-year-old.
The transfer Guru added: “Chelsea have twice tried to use Timo Werner in potential swap deals this summer … Werner may remain an option on RB Leipzig’s list for a loan move despite the talks collapsing quickly for Nordi Mukiele, his old club remains interested in him.
“Juventus had discussed Werner in the negotiations for Matthijs de Ligt and he remains a player appreciated by Massimiliano Allegri.”
Meanwhile, former Chelsea midfielder Craig Burley has hit back at Thomas Tuchel following his comments after the Arsenal thrashing.
Thomas Tuchel was furious at his players following their defeat to Arsenal questioning their commitment and mentality.
Reacting to Thomas Tuchel’s comments, Craig Burley said: “I have a problem with this guy at the moment. Managers will look to make excuses, there’s always a way to try and get out.
“I’m sorry, there are not ten players trying to leave Chelsea. Timo Werner’s name has been mentioned, and so has Azpilicueta’s. I know he’s lost some players, they’ve brought some in, and they might bring some more in. But I’ve got a problem with that attitude.
“When asked if they’ll be ready for the start of the season, it’s his job and his coaching staff and his sports scientists and all the people behind the scenes to have these players ready. It’s his job to have them prepared and up for it.
“I’m sorry but as the old saying goes, the buck stops with the manager. Don’t tell Chelsea fans they might not be ready for the start of this season, tell me whose job it is. It’s his job.”
