Chelsea morning headlines as Timo Werner talks opened and Man United star wants Blues transfer

Chelsea have potentially been handed a boost in the battle to sign Timo Werner.

The RB Leipzig man is one of the most in-demand strikers in the world, with the Blues, Liverpool and Bayern Munich having all been linked.

“Werner has now decided to publicly refrain from switching to FC Bayern. I can understand the reaction,” Matthaus told Sky Sports Germany.
