Chelsea are reportedly considering firing Timo Werner after a sad season in front of goal – and could use the German to lure Erling Haaland to the club.
The 25-year-old, who came to the Blues from RB Leipzig for £47.5 million last July, has scored just six goals in 35 Premier League games and squandered a ton of golden opportunities in his England debut campaign.
Despite his contract still having four years left, the West London club are reportedly keen to cash in on Werner this summer and have reportedly been exploring the possibility of swapping him for Haaland, the BBC said. Sky Sports in Germany.

The West London club would insist on a player-plus-cash deal for Erling Haaland
Haaland had a stunning first full season with Borussia Dortmund last season, scoring 27 goals in 28 Bundesliga games and scoring 41 goals in as many games across all competitions.
Chelsea would accept that any offer to Dortmund to get arguably the best young talent in world football would require a player plus a cash offer and potentially pay him more than top earner N’Golo Kante, who earns £290,000 a week.
Dortmund, however, is said to have completely rejected the idea of a swap deal and are known for having tough negotiations, as seen in the Jadon Sancho saga.
The latest club to have reportedly expressed an interest in Haaland is Andrea Pirlo’s Juventus.

Haaland’s mind, meanwhile, is very similar to playing for his current club this season
He told Stadium Astro: ‘I had a little chat with new manager Marco Rose. I know him from back in the day because I was with him in Salzburg for six months. He’s a nice guy and I look forward to working with him.”
