REPORTS: Chelsea star wanted by Atletico Madrid after disappointing start to the season

No doubts, Chelsea were one of the very active Premier league clubs in the just concluded ummer transfer window.

The West London club, guided by Thomas Tuchel are keen on competing with the likes of Manchester City, Manchester United and Liverpool this season and have added Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Bettinelli in order to improve their squad.

That has quite worked well so far, as the Blues are currently sitting in first place on the Premier League table after racking up 16 points from their first seven league matches.

However, Chelsea could now be rocked with reports that experienced striker Timo Werner could be on his way out of the club when the transfer window opens next year.

The 25-year-old Germany International, who joined Chelsea from Bundesliga side RB Leipzig in 2020 has so far failed to live up to expectations at the club since he made the move.

The frontman was quite impressive for Chelsea in the 2020/2021 season where he scored 12 goals and provided 15 assists in 52 appearances for the club.

However, the Stamford Bridge side were not so impressed and were forced to splash the cash to sign Romelu Lukaku from Inter Milan during the summer.

The arrival of Romelu Lukaku has affected the playing time of Timo Werner this season, and after scoring 2 goals and providing 1 assist in a disappointing campaign so far, he could now be set to leave the club.

Timo Werner will definitely consider his transfer options next year and according to reports from The Sun, LaLiga side Atletico Madrid are interested in signing the striker.

The reports claimed that Atletico Madrid are keen on improving their attacking options under manager Diego Simeone and will make a move to tempt Timo Werner away from Chelsea.

That said, it remains to be seen if Chelsea will be willing to part ways with Timo Werner as they view him as an important member of the first-team squad.
