Chelsea are reportedly ready to move for Timo Werner if Liverpool opt against making an approach for the RB Leipzig forward.

Chelsea reportedly remain interested in trying to secure a deal for RB Leipzig forward Timo Werner.

Despite being admirers of the Germany international for a number of months, it has been frequently claimed that Chelsea are behind Liverpool in the race for the 24-year-old's signature.

While the Merseyside giants are expected to activate Werner's release clause in the coming months, it remains to be seen how they will handle the financial implications of the coronavirus pandemic.

According to 90 min, Chelsea are ready to make their move if Jurgen Klopp opts to prioritise other areas of the pitch.

Unlike Liverpool, the Blues face upheaval in the final third at the end of the campaign with Willian and Pedro due to leave on free transfers.

Michy Batshuayi is also expected to be sold by the West Londoners, leaving Frank Lampard to pursue at least one high-profile addition.
