Chelsea contemplating providing star to Borussia Dortmund in alternate for Erling Haaland
According to the latest reports, the Premier League club Chelsea are considering throwing forward Timo Werner in an offer for world-class striker Erling Haaland at Borussia Dortmund.
That emerges from a recent report from Sky Sports Germany, which claims the misfiring German could be used as a sweetener to get Haaland into England’s premier league.
After moving from RB Leipzig last summer, Werner (25) joined the Blues with a deal worth £ 47.7 million.
Despite arriving in the English Premier League, widely recognized as one of Europe’s most devastating attackers, Werner struggled at Stamford Bridge in the inaugural season to string every kind of form.
