UCL giants are desperate to sign £170,000-a-week Chelsea striker

Timo Werner has emerged as a crucial target for Carlo Ancelotti heading into the summer transfer window. The Real Madrid coach wants to raid the London giants for Germany international, who could be available for an affordable price.

Timo arrived at Stamford Bridge from RB Leipzig last summer in a big-money deal, with a lot of hype surrounding him at the time of the transfer. However, 2020/21 ended up being one to forget for Werner, even though he finished the season with 12 goals and 15 assists, by far the most direct contributions to a goal for Chelsea.

In particular, it was his output in front of goal that left a lot to be desired, with Blues now looking to sign a top-class centre-forward for a second successive summer, the likes of Harry Kane, Romelu Lukaku, and Erling Haaland have all been linked.

The 25-year-old striker’s stock, though, has not fallen seemingly, with Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti looking to sign him.

Carlo Ancelotti is back at the helm at Real Madrid ahead of the 2021/22 campaign, and he could likely raid some of his former clubs for his key targets this summer. To that end, Los Blancos have been linked with Richarlison, Hirving Lozano and James Rodriguez, among others.

The ex-Chelsea manager has now turned his attention towards Chelsea, with the German striker popping up on his radar. The interest in the German centre-forward is hardly surprising, though, considering he still has his best years well ahead of him and is adept at playing across the front-line.
