Due to his problems at Stamford Bridge, Real Madrid is allegedly exploring a surprise transfer raid for Chelsea attacker Timo Werner.
Even though he scored 34 goals in his final season with former club RB Leipzig, the Germany international has only scored 23 goals in two years in west London.
Werner is now being linked to Real Madrid, who are looking to add an attacking player, per Mundo Deportivo.

This is certainly a slightly strange rumour, as it’s hard to see what Los Blancos feel Werner would add to their squad.
The 26-year-old may have had good potential a few years ago, but since joining a major league team, he has struggled, and it seems likely that he will also have trouble at the Bernabeu.
However, the Spanish giants could possibly believe it’s worthwhile to take a chance on him and work to restore him to his best.
Werner may be a passable squad player at the very least, giving Carlo Ancelotti extra depth up front.
