Timo Werner endured a difficult debut season at Chelsea, scoring just 6 Premier League goals last season.

The arrival of Romelu Lukaku has seen him drop down the pecking order at Chelsea.

However, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel insists Werner remains a central part of his plans amid interest in the forward from Bayern Munich.

“I am sure that we will find games and solutions where we play with both of them (Timo Werner and Romelu Lukaku),” said Tuchel.

“We did already and Timo and Romelu can be a good fit together. Timo loves to play around a reference up front and Romelu is clearly our reference up front being a tall and physical player.

“The most important is he finds his rhythm and confidence and joy and makes his point and makes his way into the team.

“The players are in charge to take their positions and fight for their positions and once they have it to not give it away.

“We are very happy that he scored and played (for Germany in the international break) and on we go.

“We have not too many players but we have players with high quality and high ambition and Timo is clearly a guy that we count on and that is absolutely necessary we have him on high level.”
