Timo Werner scored 34 goals for RB Leipzig in the 2019/20 season, and it was expected that he’d bring that same figure to Chelsea, but it has been far from it.

The 25-year-old scored just six Premier League goals and 12 goals in all competitions in his first season at Stamford Bridge, but Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel still valued him because of his contribution to the team’s attacking play.

Former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has claimed that Werner isn’t good enough with his conversion rate.

“I like the quality of his runs,” Wenger said on beIN SPORTS. “I like his movement, but he’s not… we see his conversion rate with the number of chances he has.

“He’s not good enough to say…”

While we may not be pleased with Wenger’s statement, but it’s a fact that even Tuchel must be worried about.

For Chelsea to win the league next season, the Blues must have a 20+ goalscorer. Winning a league title needs consistency, and Chelsea must get a top striker who will bang in the goals to achieve that feat.
