Unsettled Chelsea striker Timo Werner is attracting tentative interest from former club Red Bull Leipzig.

Unsettled Chelsea striker Timo Werner is attracting tentative interest from former club Red Bull Leipzig.

The German forward has come under criticism from coach Thomas Tuchel and had been offered in talks with Juventus for Matthijs de Ligt prior to his move to Bayern Munich.

The former Leipzig striker is among the most underwhelming pieces of business conducted by the Blues in recent years, scoring just 23 goals in 89 games since joining from RB Leipzig in a £53m deal in 2020.

He has struggled to cement a place in Tuchel’s starting XI during his two seasons at Stamford Bridge. But now it appears he could have annoyed the German manager with what he is doing off the pitch too.

Speaking recently however, the Blues striker said he could ‘be happy everywhere’ and that it was ‘clear’ that he wants to play more ahead of the World Cup later this year.

He also appeared to take a subtle dig at Tuchel by saying: ‘I think of course the manager always has different ideas, different thoughts and what you need in different games. I think in many games I was not in his thoughts so I try to change that.’

Tuchel responded by saying: ‘I’m surprised, I would be very happy as a young guy having a contract at Chelsea Football Club.

‘I would be one of the happiest people on the planet. He needs to get his game time by showing quality, take your place and defend your place.

‘I would be one of the happiest people on the planet having a contract with Chelsea. If he said this, I do not understand.’

Borussia Dortmund have previously shown an interest but it is unlikely Chelsea would be happy to part ways with two major forwards in the same window.

For the time being it appears Werner will be given one more year before a decision is made in 2023, when he will have two years left on his deal
