Is this Chelsea star going to be Arsenal’s ‘mystery winger’ signing?

Should Arsenal try to buy this Chelsea man?

After Arsenal failed to land their number one winger target in Raphinha, there has been little to no talk of signing an alternative.

Leroy Sane, Cody Gakpo and Pedro Neto’s name has appeared, but there hasn’t been anything concrete about it.

It is clear that the club’s hierarchy see the attacking wing position as a priority heading into the next season.

Signing a winger who can operate as a center forward would be the best-case scenario of being prepared for a lengthy lay-off, should it come, towards Gabriel Jesus’ way.

PSV’s Gakpo is one player who can play as a center forward and a winger with almost equal effect. But if Arsenal want a player with Premier League experience, then why shouldn’t they keep an eye on Chelsea’s Timo Werner.

The German was one of the most lethal strikers in world football, when he was plying his trade with former side RB Leipzig.

He scored an astonishing 93 goals and assisted 40 times at Red Bull Arena in just 158 appearances.

Although he has lost his shine at London club Chelsea, a new adventure somewhere else might put him back on the European charts.

The case of signing Werner is strengthened with the Blues open to letting the 26-year-old depart, either on a temporary or permanent basis.

Arsenal can go for a loan with an option to buy move, which will be the safest bet. If Werner performs well, they can acquire him without paying a bonus on top of the agreed fee.

If things go awry, the Gunners won’t be forced to sign him outright.

It is a deal which not only suits the North London outfit but Werner himself. The German international is already acclimatized to London and the Premier League.

Thus, there won’t be a “settling-in” period. Werner is the right profile of player that Arsenal have been actively seeking in their project.

His addition will add a whole new dimension to the frontline of Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal.

  1. Werner is interesting one of the hottest properties in football pre-pandemic had a deal in place with Liverpool fell through because of the pandemic and Chelsea stepped in. Presumably available for 30 mil or less it’s an intriguing gamble especially with martinelli, jesus, saka, esr and Eddie there if it doesn’t work out. Can play across the front 3 as well which bare minimum makes it less of a risk to play Eddie/jesus in the same team. Knows the league and the city. Not one I’m massively excited about but an intriguing gamble with huge upside and at this point I do trust our recruitment team if they decide to pursue it.

  2. I wouldn’t say no to his addition, but my only concern is players who we have purchased from Chelsea have not really make the difference for us. We gave them some of our good players and they gave us outcast in return.
    Werner not succeeding there doesn’t necessarily mean he’s a bad player.
    Klopp wanted him so bad and he knew his profile very well.
    He might fit very well in other English team.
    Strikers are known to struggle In chealse team.
    Toress, lukaku, Werner, sheve, and so many endless strikers haven’t work out with them.
    Only Costa was able to fill that line since drogba left.

    1. Kaay, It is always wise to judge by thr individual and particular player in question and NEVER to judge by generalisations eg “players who we have purchased from CHELSEA.

      Such as Willian and Luiz are NOTHING WHATEVER to do with Werner. He ois a completely differen tperson who just happens to play for Chelsea and like all our players too is a footballer with a nose, two legs, two arms and a head. You see, I trust, from that sentence, how foolish broad generalisations can be! Such as racists use generalisations and they are uneducated.

      I do not, obviously, say any of that racism nonsense applies to you, of course not , but those who use generalisation, rather than specifics in life matters, as in football too, are not what I would call clued up humans!

      Worth considering I’d say!

      1. I am a bit surprised that all your conclusion on all I said was you directing it to racism.
        For the record, Gallas, cech, Willian and Luiz are the one I was referring to. Unless you want to prove these signing made a significant impact to us moving forward.
        As for other thing you mentioned, I won’t reply to them because I have no idea if they are meant for me.

  3. thought it was identified as Bowen, but West Ham don’t want to sell. It’s certainly not Werner, because he isn’t very good. And doesn’t play on the right either.

  4. and he aint too bright either , cant grasp the concept of offside.
    no no and thrice no to offside Werner

      1. absoultely. Good early signs from Nunez. Haaland looked awkward, still not used to playing at this pace, will need to think quicker and get on pace with his teammates. Enjoyable game for sure tho.

          1. Ale up NY – York Gunner
            In all fairness Raphinha is not just another winger and the gaffer knows that much.

            A work horse of a player that presses well, it won’t be easy getting another of his caliber, else why that level of intrest has cool some what.

            Werner is an interesting proposition as he could well come back to life in a Arsenal shirt

      2. His wages are huge and not worth paying if he is not going to be a starter.

        Chelsea have a huge headache here

        Best leave them to it.
