Chelsea evening headlines as exit helps Timo Werner transfer and former star tipped to return

Here are your Chelsea evening headlines for Saturday, June 6.

Pedro exit could help Werner transfer

Pedro is expected to leave Chelsea imminently upon the end of his current contract at Stamford Bridge and Roma are the latest side to be attributed with an interest in the Spaniard.

It is understood that the 32-year-old is close to agreeing a two-year contract after initial discussions took place in April.

That could end up helping the push for Timo Werner from RB Leipzig too, as the Germany international would be able to take the same shirt number he currently wears for the Bundesliga side.

The German currently wears no.11 at RB Leipzig, and that squad number is set to become available at Chelsea once Pedro’s exit is officially confirmed ahead of next season.

Frank Lebeouf names ideal front three alongside Werner

Former Chelsea favourite Frank Lebouef has named the front three he wants to see line-up for the Blues next season alongside Timo Werner.

The Blues are expected to land the Germany international from RB Leipzig when the transfer window opens, bolstering Frank Lampard’s attacking options, and Lebouef has identified how he wants the new addition to fit into the side.

“Tammy Abraham is more somebody who is going to hold the ball but when Werner’s going to play he’s going to give something else to the midfielders and to the defence as well,” he told ESPN.

“So it’s a very good catch, I’m very happy. I want to see it with Ziyech on the right side, maybe Pulisic on the left side That’s going to be very, very interesting. I think it’s a very, very good signing yeah.”
