The Blues paid 47 million for Werner and they were expecting decent results from this transfer, However as it shows now, Timo’s efficiency significantly decreased. As a result of these 2 baffling seasons for Chelsea, many show concern about Werner’s future in the English club. A few reports say about his career resurgence and role in Chelsea, while others are confident that he will be sold this summer. We will check out his career moments in Chelsea and analyze whether Timo will leave or stay at Stamford Bridge.
Werner’s arrival and first misfortunes
As already mentioned, Chelsea signed Timo from RB Leipzig in 2020. From here on out, Werner’s career started to go downhill. The German international scored his first goal against Tottenham Hotspur in the fourth round of the EFL Cup. “Turbo Timo” was successful in scoring his first 2 Premier League goals against Southampton and assisted his teammate Kai Havertz. Things weren’t going that bad at the beginning, but since November Timo would go without goals for 14 consecutive matches, which was extremely baffling for both Timo and Chelsea fans. In February Timo managed to break the chain of this curse and scored his first league goal after 14 games. It’s important to mention that his form improved relatively in the Champions League games. Timo performed fine against Real Madrid in the semifinals and Man City in the finals. Even though he didn’t manage to use his chances against Man City, still played an important role as he drew the attention of the City’s defender, and his teammate Kai Havertz successfully used open spaces. Werner won major trophies with Chelsea: Champions League 2021 and UEFA Super Cup. Watching football is a truly enjoyable hobby.

Second Season at Chelsea
From a statistical point of view, the second season at Chelsea was way better for Timo. In 2020/21 Werner needed 52 games to score 12 goals. This season he already has scored 11 in only 37 games, which is certainly an improvement. The German international struck his first goal against Aston Villa at the Carabao Cup. The First Premier League goal of this season was scored by Timo against Southampton. On 8 December, Werner would write his name in the Chelsea history books as he successfully blasted the fastest goal in the Champions League for The Blues after only 82 seconds. The most memorable performance by Turbo Timo perhaps was against Real Madrid, where he scored the third goal and nearly took out Los Blancos.
How will his future go?
Werner is having two very harsh seasons at Stamford Bridge. Nonetheless, The German International truly had some memorable moments. The situation worsened for him when Chelsea signed Romelu Lukaku, who took Werner’s spot in the main squad. There are some rumors about Timo’s potential transfers. After selling their golden boy Erling Haaland to Man City, Borussia Dortmund is definitely looking for a replacement and Werner is one of them. But after playing decent games against Real Madrid, it kind of looks like his confidence is coming back. If he continues to play at his best more consistently, Thomas Tuchel might keep him for the next season.
