Timo Werner opens up about leaving Chelsea and this time he is serious.
Timo Werner has said that he could be happy anywhere as he makes a possible hint about leaving the EPL giants shortly after Sterling arrived.
Chelsea have already lost Romelu Lukaku this summer, and there are even rumours that Armando Broja could also be leaving.
But now, another striker could also be open to leaving this transfer window, according to the player himself.
Timo Werner gave an odd reaction when he was asked whether he would be happy to stay at Chelsea this season. As cited by The Telegraph, he simply replied: “I could be happy everywhere.”
Obviously with the arrival of Raheem Sterling at Chelsea plus potentially one more attacker, Werner might see his game time reduce even more despite losing Lukaku. Werner was mainly only largely a backup option for Thomas Tuchel last season, and he even admits this in the interview as well.
Offered the opportunity to clarify his situation at the club, Werner added: “It is hard to say. First of all, the most important thing is that I am happy. I am happy when I play and score goals. That’s the fact. That’s what I should take care of and the other things will come.
“I think in many games I was not in his [Tuchel’s] thoughts so I try to change that.
“First of all, the most important thing is that I am happy. I am happy when I play and score goals. That’s the fact. That’s what I should take care of and the other things will come.
we have big, big competition up front,” said Werner. “It is still the same. At a big club like Chelsea, you have that competition. In pre-season you can show that you want to play and that you are a guy who wants to be in the starting XI. That’s what I try.
“It’s quite similar in the national team with Germany. There are six or seven players who play at the top, top level and it’s the same here. So, in both teams you have to compete for the position. More often, with the national team we play with four attackers which makes it easier.
“It is clear I want to play more and I should play more to first be in good shape for the World Cup and also to have a chance to play at the World Cup. But, still, I think it’s three or four months before that.”
The trouble with players like Werner is that if he really wants to leave, there aren’t many clubs out there who would pay his wage demands so he would have to lower those.
