Timo Werner may quit Chelsea as early as this summer according to Football Insider.
The Blues spent around £47.5m to bring the striker to Stamford Bridge from RB Leipzig last summer.
Werner is reportedly ready to leave Chelsea and return to Germany after a difficult debut season in the Premier League which has seen him score only five goals in 27 appearances.
While Werner’s work ethic cannot be questioned, he has yet to replicate his prolific Bundesliga goal record in the English game.
Werner signed a five-year contract when he joined Chelsea last summer but according to Football Insider, few at Chelsea expect Werner to see out his contract, or anywhere near.
There is a growing expectation that the Germany international will return to his homeland “in the next year or two”.
Meanwhile, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has previously told Werner not to worry too much about his lack of goals.
“I demand 100% in every training, I don’t allow self-pity,” Tuchel said. “Timo is full of talent and plays for one of the best clubs in the world, in one of the best leagues in the world. So there is no need for him to worry too much.
“So if he puts in the effort, puts himself in a state of mind to play on the highest level. We are not counting the minutes [to goals] and for me and my approach it is not an issue.”
