Reports of Werner to leave on loan

Chelsea are reportedly considering allowing Timo Werner to leave on loan with Juventus allegedly ahead of Newcastle in the transfer chase.

Newcastle have been linked with the forward for months and SunSport reported yesterday how they are keen to get a deal done this summer.

However, reports now also claim that Juventus have approached the Blues over signing him on loan.

Werner has divided opinion since arriving at Chelsea from RB Leipzig in 2020.

The 26-year-old, who earns a salary of £272,000 per week, has netted 23 times and provided 21 assists in 89 appearances for the Blues – and played 37 games last season.

But his prowess in front of goal remains somewhat questionable and the arrival of Raheem Sterling has pushed him down the pecking order.
