Chelsea striker Timo Werner is apparently facing a race against time to persuade Thomas Tuchel that he is capable of sending the Blues back to the silverware.
The Germany international has scored 10 times and 11 assists in 41 appearances for his current side since joining RB Leipzig in July.
The 24-year-old has only managed five Premier League goals, however, and his struggles in front of goal have raised suspicions that Chelsea may be on the hunt for two new forwards this summer.
As indicated by the Evening Standard, Sergio Aguero of Manchester City and Erling Braut Haaland of Borussia Dortmund are the two targets of the Blues in the imminent market.
Thus, the report ensures that Timo Werner faces a race to intrigue his boss, with the German’s leading role in the squad coming into serious jeopardy next season.
The forward, who was firmly linked with Liverpool before moving to Stamford Bridge, signed a five-year contract with the six-time England champions when he arrived the previous summer.
