Chelsea striker Timo Werner has been warned he would be sold by the club if he doesn’t improve.

This warning comes despite the striker scoring in Chelsea’s 3-1 victory over Southampton on Saturday.

According to former Blues striker Tony Cascarino, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is running out of patience with Werner following his statement after Chelsea’s victory over Southampton.

“Thomas Tuchel’s comment that there were “a lot of things to improve” for Timo Werner after his goal against Southampton was telling,” Cascarino told The Times.

“Chelsea fans have been loyal to misfiring centre forwards, such as Andriy Shevchenko and Fernando Torres, in the past and the same has been true of Werner, but strikers cannot be simply OK at big clubs.

“The German cannot continue to miss so many big chances, because otherwise – just as with Shevchenko and Torres – the club will move him on.”

The German has two goals in his last three appearances after managing just 12 goals in 52 appearances across all competitions last year.
