Borussia Dortmund frontrunners to land Chelsea star Timo Werner
When Borussia Dortmund set their eyes on a player, more often than not, they force their way into getting him. This time they have set their sights on Timo Werner, and the club are working hard to cut a deal with Chelsea for the striker.
The reports in Germany suggested that Borussia Dortmund are frontrunners to land Chelsea striker Timo Werner.
He has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
The Germany international only joined Chelsea from RB Leipzig in 2020 for 53 million euros and his contract runs to June 2025.
He has featured in 27 matches this term, netting 7 goals and providing 4 assists in all competitions.
The 26-year-old is considered to be one of the best strikers in Germany. His record for Germany is also impressive. Werner has scored 22 goals in 48 matches for Germany at senior level.
According to the reports,Timo Werner will now be allowed to leave in the summer transfer window.
Adding a striker remains Borussia Dortmund’s top priority this summer and Marco Rose will have drafted a shortlist of a number of possible targets he could approach in the coming weeks.
Rose is a firm fan of Chelsea striker and BVB could make a move for the player if the financial aspect makes sense.
BVB are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.
The former RB Leipzig man provides a unique blend between a classic center-forward and the modern striker. His arrival would give Dortmund some much needed tactical flexibility.
According to the report, “German giants Borussia Dortmund are looking at Timo Werner as a striker signing for the summer. The Chelsea forward is likely to leave the Premier League club this summer. With Dortmund likely to lose Norway attacker Erling Haaland, Calciomercato states that Werner may emerge as his replacement. The German has struggled in the Premier League, but was prolific for RB Leipzig in the Bundesliga before transferring in 2020. Werner would be happy with the move, as he would likely be BVB’s starting centre-forward. According to German outlet Sport1, Chelsea would demand at least £33m for the 26-year-old. The Blues paid £47m for Werner back in the summer of 2020.”
Euro Football Rumours
If Borussia Dortmund can agree on a fee with the Blues, the deal should be easy to complete.
It is claimed that Chelsea are open to letting Werner go.
Timo Werner ideal fit for Borussia Dortmund?
If Werner is available for the right price, then he could be a clever acquisition for Borussia Dortmund.
The 26-year-old has all the skillset required to be a success story at Dortmund. Therefore, it makes sense for Marco Rose to step up his attempts to bring the Germany striker to Bundesliga side.
A move to Borussia Dortmund is exactly what Werner needs to reignite his career, and we hope he is able to do just that.
How strong that interest is and whether BVB will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
