Chelsea are considering offloading Timo Werner and reportedly plan to use him as part of a deal for Erling Haaland.

Werner, who moved to Stamford Bridge last summer in a £47.5m deal, failed to live up to expectations after scoring just six goals in 35 Premier League games last season.

Despite still having four years left on his deal, Sky Sports Germany claim Thomas Tuchel's side are reportedly keen to cash in on Werner this summer and are exploring the option of using him in a swap deal for Borussia Dortmund star, Haaland.

The Blues are desperate to land Haaland this transfer window and are willing to pay him more than top earner N'Golo Kante, who earns £290,000 a week. However, the report adds that Dortmund have rejected the swap offer as they remain adamant to hold on to their best player.

Haaland's mind meanwhile seems very much on playing for his current club this season. He told Stadium Astro: "I talked a little bit with new manager Marco Rose. I know him from before because I had six months with him in Salzburg. He's a nice guy and I look forward to working with him."

Ex-Dortmund captain and soon to be sporting director Sebastian Kehl told Sky Germany: "There is nothing new on this matter. He is in our plans. Erling will return this week and he will be very hungry. He wants to play football, he feels comfortable with us and he will be eager to score many goals."
