Chelsea are considering a pursuit of Timo Werner of RB Leipzig if he signals he's willing to join their club.

Chelsea would like to buy a striker this summer and have identified Moussa Dembele as their preferred target. Lyon was seeking an £80 million fee for Dembele in January. That asking price is certain to be lower now, in part as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

By contrast, Werner's valuation is simple due to his £49m release clause. Liverpool and Manchester United have also expressed an interest in Werner, whose preference is a move to Anfield.
