According to SportBild’s Christian Falk, Chelsea have contacted the representatives of RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner about a potential summer transfer to Stamford Bridge.
Premier League rivals Manchester United are also interested in the striker and have also reportedly contacted the representatives of the striker.
League leaders Liverpool are reportedly leading the race for the striker but the Reds have not yet decided whether they’ll go for Werner this summer.
