‘Another Morata’ – Chelsea fans make transfer decision on Timo Werner after Bayern performance

Chelsea wanted to add to their attacking options during the January transfer window, as they looked to take the pressure off leading goalscorer Tammy Abraham during the second half of the season.

The Blues were linked to many named including Moussa Dembele, Edinson Cavani and Dries Mertens, but in the end they failed to get any deal over the line.

It means that Frank Lampard goes into the end of season running with Abraham, Michy Batshuayi and Olivier Giroud as his three striking options as Chelsea aim to hold onto fourth spot in the Premier League.

One other name that was linked with a January move to Stamford Bridge was Red Bull Leipzig striker Timo Wener, with speculation that the forward was available for around £60 million.

Werner has scored 25 goals in 30 appearances in all competitions so far this season.

However, Blues’ fans watching the game were left unimpressed by Werner’s performance, with one incident in particular catching fans’ attention.

Speaking about his future, the German international seemed open to a move to the Premier League.

“Of course, if you scored 20 goals at the age of 23 in the course of the season so far, that will arouse prospects,” he told Kicker. “That is clear.

“But as of now I am not worried about what will happen in the future.

“We are now facing important games that are crucial for the rest of the season. I want to focus on that. I can think about my future at some point later.”
