Newcastle United want to sign Timo Werner?
Newcastle United are exploring the possibility of signing Chelsea forward Timo Werner this summer, according to Bild.
The Germany international has been with the Blues for the past two seasons, but has not lived up to his expectations.
He has struggled to convert his scoring chances, and he is no longer a guaranteed starter under Thomas Tuchel.
Hence, he has been touted to leave the Blues this summer, and Bild claim that the Magpies are interested in his services.
The Tynesiders have been searching for a quality marksman in recent weeks, but have been unsuccessful in finding one.
Hugo Ekitike was their prime target at the beginning of the month, but he has ended up joining Paris Saint-Germain.
Werner has now emerged as an option for the Magpies, and it remains to be seen whether they can secure his services.
The 26-year-old seems keen on returning to Bundesliga with RB Leipzig open to re-signing him on a season-long loan.
