CHELSEA are interested in a swap deal involving Timo Werner and Leroy Sane ahead of next summer.

That is according to Todos Fichajes, who report that the Blues are targeting Sane and are willing to let Werner go the other way to Bayern Munich.

The striker has been among Bayern's top targets for quite some time after his former RB Leipzig manager Julian Nagelsmann took over at the Allianz Arena.

The Germany international endured a turbulent debut campaign with the Blues and has fallen down the pecking order following Romelu Lukaku's record £97.5million return to Stamford Bridge.

The west Londoners are reportedly looking to pounce on that opportunity as they could use the 25-year-old as leverage to sign former Manchester City star Sane.

However, the German champions are not keen on letting the winger go after spending a hefty £38.4m in 2020, even though he has been relegated to a supporting role.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel also insists Werner remains an integral part of the club despite recent reports suggesting he will soon leave.

Tuchel recently said: "I am sure that we will find games and solutions where we play with both of them [Werner and Lukaku].


"We did already and Timo and Romelu can be a good fit together.

"Timo loves to play around a reference up front and Romelu is clearly our reference up front being a tall and physical player.

"The most important is he finds his rhythm and confidence and joy and makes his point and makes his way into the team.

"The players are in charge to take their positions and fight for their positions and once they have it to not give it away.

"We are very happy that he scored and played [for Germany in the international break] and on we go.

"We have not too many players but we have players with high quality and high ambition and Timo is clearly a guy that we count on and that is absolutely necessary we have him on high level."
