'As of today...': Fabrizio Romano offers latest on Newcastle's pursuit of 'brilliant' Champions League winning player

Newcastle are one of the clubs interested in signing Timo Werner from Chelsea and Fabrizio Romano has given a brief update on the striker’s situation.

Werner has struggled to have the impact he wanted at Chelsea, despite being part of Thomas Tuchel’s Champions League winning team. The German striker has often struggled for goals, missing countless big chances and becoming more of a winger than main striker for Chelsea.

Reports this week have suggested both Arsenal and Newcastle could be interested in signing Werner. However, Fabrizio Romano has taken to Twitter to say that, as of yet anyway, the Mags have had no talks whatsoever when it comes to signing Werner.

Despite struggling for goals, Werner has indeed impressed some of his teammates at times. In fact, Mason Mount claimed the German had been ‘brilliant’ last year after being give his chance back in the first-team.

“He’s been brilliant since he came in at Southampton and then in Madrid. You can see he’s full of energy. He gives everything so I’m very pleased for him. He got me a little assist, could have had another one and he could have had a couple of goals as well. He’s done so well the past couple of games,” Mount said of Werner.

TBR’s View: Werner Needs A Fresh Start

It would be interesting to see if Werner went to Newcastle and succeeded. He does work hard, he just lacks the end product of a player who cost £50m+ for the Blues.

A fresh start is probably needed for the German. A move to Arsenal does seem unlikely now, although you just never know with the Gunners this window. As for Newcastle, well, they do want a new wide forward player, and could see Werner as ideal.
