According to Daily Star, Chelsea have a better chance of signing Red Bull Leipzig striker Timo Werner than Lyon’s Moussa Dembele in January.

Both strikers have been linked with a January move to Chelsea as a replacement for Olivier Giroud who is set to leave the club in January.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard recently revealed his desire to add attacking players to the squad.

Lampard said: “I will look at all areas of the team but I think it was quite clear in the summer that you lose Eden Hazard, who was a huge part of scoring or creating our goals last season and the season before that.

“I think we’ve found ways as a team where we can still be competitive. We’ve shown that in the league and now the Champions League.

“But if we’re looking at if we can get even better, can we get better in forward areas to help the idea of being more clinical, then I think we’ll always look at that.”
