Four clubs want Timo Werner
First up, despite his Chelsea struggles to date, four top European clubs are said to be eyeing Timo Werner.
The German was a prolific goalscorer and assister during his stint with RB Leipzig, but has struggled in front of goal since he joined Chelsea.
Werner did score over the weekend vs Southampton, but an offside goal in that game means that Werner has now had 16 goals disallowed whilst playing for Chelsea.
Regardless, Werner, according to Express Sport, is attracting interest from four sides ahead of the January transfer window
Said sides are said to be Atletico Madrid, Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund and Juventus.
