Report: Arsenal now interested in signing £45m forward, Arsene Wenger has concerns over his finishing
Arsenal aren’t the only English side linked with Werner, with Newcastle United also previously linked to the 26-year-old.
Arsenal interested in Werner, but Wenger has concerns
Brought in by Frank Lampard for £45m in the summer of 2020, Werner has played several roles at Chelsea, as either a lone centre-forward or wide attacker, but never made the desired impact.
The German forward hasn’t enjoyed the best start to life in England, having only scored ten Premier League goals in his two seasons at Chelsea.
He said: “I like his movement, but his conversion rate with his number of chances he has.”
“In this kind of tournaments, you have to, you need a good conversion rate.”
The German international’s scoring record in the Bundesliga suggests that there is potential for Werner to become a prolific forward again, but the evidence has yet to be seen in the Premier League.
If Arsenal were to make a move for him it would be somewhat of a surprise.
The Gunners have already added Gabriel Jesus this summer to strengthen their front line, while their wing options look strong already.
Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Martinelli, Emile Smith Rowe and Reiss Nelson all have capabilities to start on the flanks for Arteta’s men.
That being said, if Arsenal could get Werner back into the form which he showed in Germany, then his arrival would only strengthen their attacking ranks further, and give them real weapons to utilise.
