Timo Werner’s agent has clarified the striker will be staying at Chelsea this summer amid rumours of a move to Real Madrid.

Werner joined Chelsea last summer for £47.5million, but only managed six goals in 35 Premier League appearances for the west London outfit.

The striker’s current contract with the club isn’t due to expire until 2025 and his agent, Karlheinz Forsterbe, has reassured Chelsea fans that he isn’t going to leave anytime soon.

Speaking to German news outlet Sport1, he said: “You can’t rule out anything, but if I had to assess it at the moment, then I would say very clearly that Timo will stay at Chelsea,

“He feels comfortable there. A move will not be an issue in the foreseeable future”

Chelsea have been linked to Borussia Dortmund superstar Erling Haaland with Thomas Tuchel looking to push for the Premier League title after last season’s sensational Champions League win.

Despite the links it appears that Werner would still be happy to stay and fight for his place in Tuchel’s side.

Speaking after the Champions League final, the German international discussed his disappointing season and made it known he wants to stay at Chelsea.

He said: “In terms of scoring and missing chances, it was the worst season. But in the end I still have 27 goal contributions.

“I think I’m the first in our team for that, so it was not everything bad and I don’t think about leaving the club this year, for sure not.

“And also for the next year because I think we have a very good team and I hope to come back to scoring and that I can do everything that’s expected of me.”

Werner is currently on international duty with Germany and will face off against England at Wembley for their Euro 2020 last 16 tie on Tuesday.

The 25-year-old has played just 39 minutes across two matches for his nation in the competition, but could be chosen by coach Joachim Low for the clash with The Three Lions because of his knowledge of the Premier League players in England’s side.
