Werner set for Chelsea stay

Timo Werner has no plans of leaving Chelsea during the ongoing transfer window, Sport1's Florian Plettenberg claims.

The German joined the west London giants from RB Leipzig last summer, and experienced a disappointing debut season.

He registered 12 goals and 15 assists from 51 games, but he was culpable of missing several clear-cut scoring chances.

With the Blues searching for another elite striker, it was recently claimed that Werner could push for a new challenge elsewhere.

However, according to Plettenberg, that appears unlikely to happen. Werner 'definitely' wants to continue with the Blues.

Bayern Munich were recently linked with his services, but it appears that the German giants have not made any kind of approach.

Meanwhile, Chelsea have identified Borussia Dortmund's Erling Haaland as their main target to bolster the striking department.

He could cost a staggering fee of £150m. The European champions have been tipped to make a late move to sign him this summer.

The Blues have yet to make any new signings, but they are currently in advanced talks with Sevilla to land defender Jules Kounde.

Kounde is valued at around £72m. The Blues plan to reduce the valuation by half by including Kurt Zouma as a makeweight.
