Timo Werner, could still be at Tottenham next season

Timo Werner, 28, could still be at Tottenham next season.

“Tottenham are considering a permanent move for Werner, who has made an impact since joining on loan,” British media outlet Gibmi Sport reported on April 22. He wants to stay at Tottenham because he has gotten used to his new surroundings.”

Sky Sports pundit Michael Bridge told GiveMeSports: “Manager Enzi Postecoglou thinks it would be good for Tottenham if Werner doesn’t make the Germany squad for Euro 2024 (in June). But Levy’s decision hasn’t been made yet.”

Tottenham signed Werner on loan from RB Leipzig on January 10th.

His contract runs until the end of the season and includes a £15 million ($25.4 million) option to buy.

Bridge said: “£15 million is not a lot of money. Tottenham will consider keeping him permanently. I don’t think Werner will make the Euro2024 squad for his native Germany, 바카라사이트 which is a big blow for him, but if he wants to stay at Tottenham, it could be good for him. He will be able to attend Tottenham’s pre-season. At the moment, no decision has been made (about his future). But if he contributes to Tottenham until the end of the season, a permanent move is not out of the question.”

Earlier, Fabrizio Romano, who is well versed in the European transfer market, also had some positive news. “Tottenham are happy that Werner has started to build a (good) relationship with the players, both on and off the pitch. The club is happy with him.”

It will be interesting to see if Spurs will keep Werner despite his ‘lack of finishing’.

Werner made an unfortunate mistake in the 29th round of the EPL 2023-2024 season away to Fulham on Sunday. He was unable to prevent his team from a goalless defeat. Tottenham lost 0-3.

Werner was unable to find the back of the net in the 23rd minute of the second half.

Brennan Johnson’s cross from the right flank went past both the Fulham defense and the goalkeeper. The goal was empty. Werner had a golden opportunity to score, but he couldn’t get the ball on his left foot. The ball sailed wide left of the goal.

“Werner missed a big chance,” said the British publication Football London. Johnson’s pass across the face of goal was headed away. He played with commitment, but it was a terrible shot,” giving him the lowest rating of three.

Werner is an EPL veteran, but he doesn’t have that advantage.

In the past, Werner was at Chelsea, but he didn’t have much success.

He caught the eye of Chelsea after a stellar spell at Leipzig between 2016 and 2020. The transfer was successful. Chelsea bought him for £45 million in the summer of 2020.

But as time went on, Werner fell short of expectations: he was quickly thrust into the first-team, but his poor decision-making and numerous offside penalties left many lamenting. Although he did win the UEFA Champions League with Chelsea, his impact was limited.

His second year at Chelsea was no better.

Werner was relegated to the bench in the 2021-2022 season with just four league goals and one assist. He ended up returning to Leipzig in the summer of 2022 with a disappointing 23 goals in 89 official games. His transfer fee was reduced to €30 million within two years.

Werner was never the same player for his hometown club. After a strong 2022-2023 season in which he scored nine goals and provided three assists in 27 league games, his form took a step back in 2023-2024. By December of last year, he had scored just two goals in 14 games. He was relegated to the backup role.

In the meantime, Werner has also fallen out of favor with the German national team. He has played 57 times for the national team, 토토사이트 추천 but hasn’t made an appearance since March of last year against Belgium. He’s in desperate need of playing time if he wants to make it to UEFA Euro 2024 on home soil in June.

Tottenham, looking for a striker with experience at the right price, approached Werner and a loan move was agreed as the needs of the two clubs were aligned. However, it is unclear if Spurs will play the ‘permanent signing’ card.

In the meantime, Werner wants to stay at Tottenham. The £15 million option to buy must reportedly be activated before the start of Euro 2024.
