The London giants could reportedly replace Timo Werner with Atalanta centre-forward Duvan Zapata.
Timo joined the Blues on the back of a hugely prolific season with RB Leipzig.
Wener had all the credentials to end the centre-forward curse at Chelsea but clearly didn’t bring his shooting boots with him to England.
As a result, the Blues were forced to look to the transfer market once again over the summer in order to address the weakness, re-signing Romelu Lukaku from Inter Milan.
Still, even Belgium international has been struggling to find the back of the net.
There is now some suggestion that the Blues could recruit a striker in the winter transfer window in hope of providing some healthy competition for Romelu, which could prove to be the final nail in Timo’s coffin.
The Blues are considering allowing Timo Werner to leave this winter and replacing him with Atalanta goal-machine Duvan Zapata.
Chelsea are understood to be preparing a £38m bid for Colombia international.
Timo actually managed to work his way into the Blues starting line-up before his recent hamstring injury, so claims that the team are open to the idea of cashing in on him in two months time ought to be taken with a pinch of salt.
