Reports suggest the idea of leaving Chelsea is continuing to grow on Timo Werner.
According to the Daily Mail though, the German will need to wait for the Blues to sign another attacker in order for him to be allowed to leave either permanently or on loan.
Despite scoring the club’s opening goal of pre-season, the 26-year-old made it clear during the tour of the United States that he would be open to a move away from Stamford Bridge, in order to gain more playing time in a World Cup year.
This surprised his manager Thomas Tuchel, who hinted that he should feel privileged being at the club he is at, with them winning the Champions League together just a year ago.
However, the Daily Mail have claimed the club are making signing a new striker one of their top priorities, opening the door for Werner to move away.

The Blues have reportedly already tried on a number of occasions to shift the Germany international, with him being offered as part of a swap deal in the failed attempt at signing Matthijs de LIgt
It was also claimed that he was used as a last-minute hijack attempt for PSG’s signing of Nordi Mukiele, which would have set up a reunion with former club RB Leipzig.
