“He’s a problem” – Thomas Tuchel expected to sign replacement for Chelsea star

Former Chelsea striker Tony Cascarino expects Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel to sign a replacement for Chelsea striker Timo Werner.

Much was expected of Werner following his £47.5m move from RB Leipzig in 2020 but wayward finishing has been a common theme in his Chelsea career to date.

According to Cascarino, Werner remains a problem for the Blues and he expects Chelsea to sign a replacement for the forward unless he improves quickly.

“Chelsea should have put Manchester United away but they have a problem in Timo Werner, whose touch just isn’t top level, and whose finishing is worse,” Cascarino told The Times.

“I think managers should stick by strikers but the truth is that it is less likely to happen at the big clubs like Chelsea.

“Once they have decided Werner isn’t good enough, they have the money to buy a replacement. I wonder if they will soon get to that point with him.

“At the moment I don’t see him having even the impact that Fernando Torres did at Chelsea, and that was a real disappointment at the time.”
