RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner has mentioned Chelsea as a potential destination if he opts to leave the Bundesliga side in the future.
Speaking in an interview with SportBild (translated by the Daily Star), the German international revealed that although his time at Leipzig has not yet come to an end, he is already thinking about the next stage of his career, and where he would consider playing:
“Of course I want to play at a big club. But, we have not yet come to terms with the development at Leipzig. Perhaps RB will be a big club too – I’m quite sure. In Spain there are a maximum of three clubs with Barca, Real and Atletico Madrid. In England there are a few more: Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham, Liverpool, Manchester United and Manchester City.”
Werner’s profile and reputation have certainly risen sharply over the past year. Since making the switch from Stuttgart to Leipzig last summer, he has scored an extremely impressive 25 goals in just 36 appearances for the German side.
His performances at club level have been rewarded with caps for the German national side. He scored three goals in the last international break, with a brace in the 6-0 win over Norway, as well as another coming in the 2-1 win over the Czech Republic. Combined with the three he scored at the Confederations Cup, he now has six goals from just eight caps.
