Italian Serie A outfit Juventus are eyeing a loan move for Chelsea striker Timo Werner. This is according to the report from The Guardian which stated that the Old Lady have identified Werner as an attacking target with manager Maximiliano Allegri keen to strengthen his forward options ahead of the new season.

German international Werner has struggled for form since his move to Chelsea two years ago. The Blues paid around £47.5m to sign Werner from German club RB Leipzig in the summer of 2020. He has scored 23 goals in 89 Chelsea games in all competitions since he joined the club. Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchelcriticised Werner recently after the attacker aired his frustrations publicly. He has been frustrated with his time at Chelsea.

Tuchel might have his work cut out on the attacking front if Werner leaves Chelsea this summer as he has already seen RomeluLukaku return to Italian Serie A giants Inter Milan on loan. Belgian international Lukaku left Chelsea to sign for Inter Milan after just one season at Stamford Bridge. He had returned to Chelsea for his second spell at the club in a deal worth £97m. Lukaku didn't have the best of times at Chelsea last season and he had to return to the San Siro. As a matter of fact, Lukaku took a hit to his weekly salary to ensure he returned to Inter Milan this summer.
Juventus target Werner earns around £275,000 on a weekly basis at Chelsea and this could prove to be a huge stumbling block for the Italians if they decide to pursue a move for the German. Apart from Juventus, former club RB Leipzig and Newcastle United have also been linked with the German international.Werner is keen to play regular football to boost his status in the German squad ahead of the World Cup in Qatar later this year and a move away from Chelsea could make this happen. He's not a regular starter at Chelsea.
