25-year-old Chelsea attacker emerged as surprise transfer target for PL rivals

By | October 24, 2021

Timo Werner has emerged as a surprise target for Newcastle United as the club look to splash the newfound cash in 2022, according to a recent report from Fichajes.

The Magpies aims to add some much-needed firepower in the final third that has struggled with a lack of goals under manager Steve Bruce.

They believe the German could be the possible solution to their problem, even though Timo has emerged as a much-maligned figure in West London because of his struggles in front of goals.

After coming from RB Leipzig in a big-money deal last season, Werner only netted six goals in his debut season in Premier League with Chelsea.

The Magpies share the same attitude towards Timo, as the side desperately look to bring in an upgrade over Joelinton.

As for Thomas Tuchel’s side, they are unlikely to be fazed by the exit of Werner, who has failed to make an impression at Stamford Bridge.

The former Die Roten Bullen star has now even fallen down the pecking order after the arrival of centre-forward Romelu Lukaku, so the player’s exit could, in fact, be good for the Blues.

Timo, though, is not the only option for the domestic rivals. Newcastle United are also in the transfer market for another struggling attacker in Manchester United’s Anthony Martial.
