Timo Werner will leave Chelsea – Cascarino

 

Former Chelsea striker, Tony Cascarino has insisted that the German striker would leave the club soon.

According to him, the club’s board is already running out of patience for the striker who now needs to save his Blues career.

Cascarino was reacting to Werner’s latest struggles in the recent draw with Premier League rivals, Manchester United.

Werner moved to Chelsea in a £47.5m deal from RB Leipzig in 2020 with expectations high but wayward finishing has been a common theme in his Chelsea career to date.

Cascarino described the German as a ‘problem’ for Chelsea and has tipped his former club to replace him.

“Chelsea should have put Manchester United away but they have a problem in Timo Werner, whose touch just isn’t top level, and whose finishing is worse,” Cascarino told The Times.

“I think managers should stick by strikers but the truth is that it is less likely to happen at the big clubs like Chelsea.

“Once they have decided Werner isn’t good enough, they have the money to buy a replacement. I wonder if they will soon get to that point with him.

“At the moment, I don’t see him having even the impact that Fernando Torres did at Chelsea, and that was a real disappointment at the time.”
