Atletico Madrid, Barcelona battle for Chelsea attacker Timo Werner

Timo Werner fired Chelsea to the top of the Premier League as the German’s late goal inspired a controversy-filled 3-1 win against 10-man Southampton yesterday.

Chelsea star Timo Werner is the subject of transfer speculation, despite his indifferent displays for the club.

The German has failed to replicate the goal-scoring form he showed with RB Leipzig in the Bundesliga since transferring to the Premier League club.

According to TransferMarketWeb, Werner is being chased by teams including Atlético Madrid, Barcelona, Borussia Dortmund, and Juventus.

Werner has a contract with Chelsea until 2025, with the club showing little appetite to sell him for a low fee.

Despite playing 59 games for the Blues, Werner has only managed 13 goals so far.
