Accordingly, the German international striker should even see the transfer Lukakus positively, as he would feel more comfortable in the position behind the Belgian. Lukaku returned to the Blues a few days ago for 115 million euros from Inter Milan, where he was already under contract from 2011 to 2014.
Noisy Sport 1 Inter is said to have also asked Werner about the successor to Lukakus. However, the 25-year-old has indicated that he is not interested in a change. Instead, the Italians secured Edin Dzeko from AS Roma as their new center forward.
In addition to the position behind Lukaku, who will be in the attack center of coach Thomas Tuchel’s team, Werner could also switch to one of the two wings. In the 3-0 win against Crystal Palace in the first game of the new Premier League season, in which Lukaku was not yet in Chelsea’s squad, Werner played 90 minutes on the nine on Saturday.
The former Leipzig and Stuttgart resident has a contract with Chelsea that runs until 2025. In the summer of 2020, Werner moved from RB Leipzig to Stamford Bridge for 53 million euros.
