How would Chelsea line up with Timo Werner
Chelsea seem to have won the race for RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner, with reports proposing that the Germany striker has agreed terms over a move to Stamford Bridge.
RB Leipzig star had been vigorously connected with a move to Liverpool, while the likes of Manchester United, Barcelona and Real Madrid had also been credited with an enthusiasm for the free-scoring 24-year-old.
Affirmation of a change to Chelsea is expected to be announced next week, however, after Frank Lampard’s side triggered the 31-goals striker’s release clause.
The coronavirus pandemic has cataclysmically affected the transfer window, however signing a player of Timo Werner’s root for around £50m will in any case be viewed as acceptable business by the Blues.
The striker will go straight into the Chelsea starting line up as their main striker, which implies that Tammy Abraham may need to make due with increasingly constrained game time next season, while Olivier Giroud’s first-team chances will likewise endure a shot having just barely agreed another deal.
To be sure, it is set to be all adjustment in the Chelsea front three with out-of-contract pair Willian and Pedro apparently on out this summer.
Frank Lampard’s side have already signed Hakim Ziyech – another case of them doing great business early – and his mind boggling assists stats with Timo Werner’s record before goal will energize Chelsea fans ahead of the 2020-21 season.
Christian Pulisic gives another wide choice notwithstanding Callum Hudson-Odoi, with Chelsea changing ageing front three into one of the most powerful in the Premier League should they complete the Timo Werner deal.
There are likewise a lot of alternatives in midfield; Frank Lampard has settled on a three-at-the-back system recently, which leaves the likes of N’Golo Kante, Mateo Kovacic, Mason Mount, Ross Barkley, Jorginho, Billy Gilmour and Ruben Loftus-Cheek doing combating for two spots.
Reece James will be relied upon to assume a much greater role next term following a breakthrough season, in spite of the fact that on the left there has been theory that Chelsea will also target Ben Chilwell, in which case Marcos Alonso’s spot would be under real danger.
Andreas Christensen and Fikayo Tomori are different alternatives in the center as well, in spite of the fact that Cesar Azpilicueta and Antonio Rudiger look prone to be the two first-choice defenders in a 3-4-3 system.
