Timo Werner: Manchester United Linked With Move for Chelsea Flop
- Timo Werner had a two-year stint with Chelsea before he was offloaded in 2022
- The German rejoined RB Leipzig after he failed to hit the ground running in the EPL
- United are keen to reinforce their attack and believe Werner is an ideal candidate
Manchester United have been linked with a sensational transfer move for Chelsea flop, Timo Werner ahead of the January transfer window.
The German spent two years in the Premier League with the Blues, who he joined in the summer of 2020 from Bundesliga giants, RB Leipzig.
According to Sportbible, the West Londoners forked out £47.5 million to land the services of the attacker.
However, after an underwhelming spell at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea cut their losses and allowed Werner to rejoin Leipzig in 2022 for just £25.3mil.
The Blues' decision to get rid of the 27-year-old came after the forward managed just 10 Premier League goals in more than 50 top flight appearances.
Man United interested in Werner
However, it has now emerged that United are interested in bringing the Leipzig star back to the Premier League.
Sky Germany reports that the Red Devils have already inquired about the striker's availability with the view of signing him ahead of the January transfer window.
Be that as it may, it is understood that no offer has been made and there have been no negotiations at this stage.
United's interest in Werner comes at a time when the club are in dire need of more reinforcement in their attack owing to the struggles Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial have endured in front of the goal.
While Rasmus Hojlund has been prolific in the UEFA Champions League, he has been unable to make a mark on the domestic scene.

The German left Chelsea before the start of last season to return home after his failed stint in England.
Werner joined the Blues after scoring more than 70 league goals in four years for the Bundesliga giants.
