Newcastle United are in regular contact with Chelsea striker Timo Werner.

BILD says the Magpies, under new ownership, are looking to reinforce their squad and have identified Werner as a potential target for the January transfer window.

Chelsea signed the 25-year-old in June 2020 for £48m. However, he failed to replicate the same form he demonstrated at Leipzig.

During his maiden campaign at the club, Werner scored just six times. Fans were left feeling disappointed with the German striker.

As a result, Chelsea made the decision to bring in Romelu Lukaku for a club-record £97.5m this summer. Such a move has seen Werner fall further down the pecking order.

Newcastle are hoping to capitalise on the situation and they believe they can lure Werner to the club with the prospect of him becoming their man-man.
