Timo Werner It could be one of the objectives of Real Madrid to reinforce the forward this summer. In England they echo the interest of Carlo Ancelotti by the German striker of Chelsea. After his first year of blue, the player has not met all expectations at Stamford Bridge and they may be open to a transfer if an interesting offer comes in for him.
According to the newspaper Express, Carlo Ancelotti would have shown interest in having Timo Werner for his return to the bench Real Madrid. The Italian coach has set his sights on the Chelsea striker and in the coming weeks negotiations with the blues could begin to try to tie up the German, now focused on his team at Euro 2020.
Timo Werner He arrived at Chelsea last summer, being one of the star signings that the London team tackled. The German arrived as the most lethal man in the Leipzig front, but at Stamford Bridge he failed to live up to expectations. Neither for Frank Lampard nor for Thomas Touchel has he been the undisputed starter, in part because of the many occasions forgiven in front of the goal.
That has been one of the aspects that has been criticized the most to Werner, who has not finished finishing plays called for goals. The German scored 12 goals in 54 appearances in the Chelsea shirt, a far cry from the 34 goals he scored in his last season for the German team. Of course, Werner has also contributed to the blues in the form of assists, with up to 14 in his first year with the London team.

Possible departure from Chelsea
The fact that Timo Werner did not meet all expectations at Chelsea, makes the club open to a possible departure from the German. Last year Werner arrived in London at a cost of more than € 50 million and became the highest paid player on the London team’s squad. This summer, Chelsea may be willing to listen to offers for the 25-year-old German international striker.
Werner would be to the liking of Carlo Ancelotti, who has several weeks ahead of him to try to shape the team he wants on his return to the bench of the Real Madrid. In fact, the interest of the whites in Werner would not be new, he is a player that already sounded in the past for the Madrid team.
In addition, Werner would have the opportunity to share a dressing room with Karim Benzema, rival he faces in the debut in the Euro 2020 and for which he has already raved about praise. “He is one of the three best strikers in the world”, said Werner putting the French in the shortlist with Robert Lewandowski and Cristiano Ronaldo.
