“Perfect deals” – Tuchel told to offer Chelsea player in deal to sign 31goals in 30games attacker
Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has been urged to offer Timo Werner to Borussia Dortmund in a deal to sign Erling Haaland. This is according to Arsenal legend Paul Merson.
“Timo Werner could be on borrowed time for Chelsea because it’s not working out for him at all,” Merson told Starsport.
“I think he makes too many bad decisions when he gets into good positions. For the money they paid for him, he’s a rough diamond who needs to work on his game.
“I don’t know if he got by on pace alone in Germany but he hasn’t scored enough goals for Chelsea and he’s missed loads of chances.
“Now he’s playing on the wing and I know he helped make a goal against Atletico Madrid with a good cross.
“But there times you watch him and he goes on a run and tries to cross it when there’s no-one in the box and the defender blocks it anyway.
“I think Chelsea will sign a proper striker this summer and I think they will use him as a makeweight.
“It makes sense to offer him to Borussia Dortmund as part of a deal for Erling Haaland.
“Dortmund will need a replacement if they sell Haaland and Werner is ready-made and proven in the Bundesliga. He would probably appeal to them.”
