Real Madrid are keen to sign a striker and are reportedly eyeing Chelsea’s Timo Werner. The German leads the list of four drawn up by Carlo Ancelotti.
acc Directo Gol, Real Madrid have Edin Dzeko, Raul de Tomas and Benjamin Sesko on their radar alongside Werner. Los Blancos are keen on signing a replacement for Karim Benzema this summer and are yet to finalize their options.
Mariano Díaz is currently Benzema’s replacement at the Santiago Bernabeu but the striker is set to make a move. He failed to impress across two periods during his time at Madrid. The Dominican has scored just 12 goals and provided just three assists for Real Madrid in 73 appearances in all competitions.
Celta Vigo want to sign him and the move is likely via Managing Madrid, according to Cadena SER. The Champions League winner also had Luka Jovic on his books but he joined Fiorentina earlier this summer.
Real Madrid’s goal is open to leave Chelsea
Timo Werner spoke to the media earlier in the summer and confirmed he was unhappy with the minutes he was getting. The German added that he wants to play more as he aims for a place in the World Cup squad.
He was quoted by The Sun as saying:
“I could be happy anywhere. The most important thing is that I’m happy. I’m happy when I’m playing and scoring goals. That’s the fact. I should take care of that and other things will come. The manager always has different ideas, different thoughts and what you need in different games.
“In a lot of games I wasn’t on his mind, so I’m trying to change that. It’s no different than last season, it was the same when Romelu came. We had big, big competition. It’s still the same.”
At a big club like Chelsea, you have that competition. In pre-season you can show that you want to play, that you’re a guy who wants to be in the starting XI. I’m trying.
“It’s clear that I want to play more and should play more to be in good shape for the World Cup – and also to have a chance to play.”
Chelsea currently have Armando Broja and Kai Havertz in their squad as forward options.
