Timo Werner has been warned that he still has work to do to continue his Chelsea career by ex-Blues striker Tony Cascarino.

The 25-year-old has been enduring quite a rough time at west London, which prompted Chelsea to sanction a club-record £97.5m deal to lure Romelu Lukaku back to Stamford Bridge.

And Cascarino admitted that Werner, who managed just six league goals in his first year in the Premier League, cannot afford to keep missing so many big chances.

“Thomas Tuchel’s comment that there were “a lot of things to improve” for Timo Werner after his goal against Southampton was telling,” Cascarino said in his column for 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 cannot be simply OK at big clubs. The German cannot continue to miss so many big chances, because otherwise — just as with Shevchenko and Torres — the club will move him on.”

Werner’s struggles have a similarity to the misfortune of Shevchenko and Torres, who both endured a goal drought time at Stamford Bridge.

The Germany international has two goals in his last three appearances after managing just 12 goals in 52 appearances across all competitions last year.
