Former Chelsea striker, Tony Cascarino has warned Timo Werner that he will be ‘moved on’ by the club unless he improves speedily following manager Thomas Tuchel’s comments on him.
Tuchel was pleased Werner scored in Chelsea’s Premier League 3-1 win over Southampton on Sunday but later said there was room for improvement in his game.
But Cascarino believes Tuchel’s comments were ‘telling’ and has warned Werner that Chelsea will sell him unless he improves his finishing.
Werner, 25, has endured a mixed spell at Chelsea since joining the Blues from RB Leipzig for £47.5m.
“Thomas Tuchel’s comment that there were “a lot of things to improve” for Timo Werner after his goal against Southampton was telling,” Cascarino told The Times.
“Chelsea fans have been loyal to misfiring centre forwards, such as Andriy Shevchenko and Fernando Torres, in the past, and the same has been true of Werner, but strikers can’t be simply OK at big clubs.
“The German can’t continue to miss so many big chances because otherwise – just as with Shevchenko and Torres – the club will move him on.”
