Borussia Dortmund are reportedly considering a summer transfer swoop for Chelsea flop Timo Werner.

Werner, 25, made a cameo appearance off the bench in the Carabao Cup final to no avail as regular minutes on the pitch have been hard to come by for the German international since Romelu Lukaku's signing.

“We have always had the options," manager Thomas Tuchel said in the past when Werner was absent alongside Lukaku for a Champions League group stage encounter back in 2021.

"It is on the players when they are needed and they have the chance to show their potential, they need to show it. That’s life at Chelsea. This is what they do in a very impressive way. We always have options.

"When we play with Romelu, we play with Romelu. When we play with Timo, we play with Timo. When they are not available we try to find solutions.

"That’s why we are here, it’s why we have a big squad. It is why we trust everybody, the guys know what it takes to play for Chelsea."
