January is getting closer, and Chelsea wish to have their transfer ban lifted in time to secure some players to strengthen Frank Lampard’s squad. In this series, we look at some of our reported targets and how their campaign so far is going.
Timo Werner is one of the hottest prospects in Europe right now, a goalscoring machine ready to move to a top side from RB Leipzig, where he’s been progressing superbly.
A remarkable 17 goals and 9 assists already this campaign show he’s matured into a top starter already and could slot into almost any Champions League contender’s squad by the look of things.
In fact, after a relatively slow first few months, the Stuttgart academy product has netted 7 and notched 5 assists in his last four matches, a quite astonishing spurt that has fired the Saxon side into contention at the top of the Bundesliga.
The price will certainly put a few people off, as Red Bull don’t need the money from anyone, and will gladly watch the price tag of their prospect grow through the rest of the campaign.
We will clearly need a few strikers soon, with Tammy’s injury this week highlighting the lack of ability we have behind him in the squad. But this agreement is probably too big to be wrapped up in time, and if you’re hoping to see Timo Werner at Chelsea, you may have to wait until the summer, at the very least.
