Timo Werner transfer news – odds: Newcastle favourites to sign Chelsea forward after 'true' interest claim | The Sun

NEWCASTLE are frontrunners to sign Chelsea forward Timo Werner.

That's according to the latest odds provided by bookmakers Sky Bet, who've priced Eddie Howe's side at 4/1 to clinch his signature this summer.

However, there's no shortage of competition with several European heavyweights also in contention.

Serie A giants Juventus are a fraction behind at 5/1, just ahead of Werner's previous club RB Leipzig, who are available at 6/1.

There's a big jump to the remaining contenders with Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund sharing odds of 16/1.

Erik ten Hag's Manchester United are outsiders of the chasing pack at 33s.

Werner arrived at Stamford Bridge from RB Leipzig in 2020 for £47.5million.

But the 26-year-old has divided opinion despite scoring 23 goals and providing 21 assists in 89 appearances.

The Germany international still has three years remaining on his £272,000 per-week contract, which expires in June 2025.

But Werner did get tongues wagging after saying that he 'could be happy everywhere', amid various exit rumours.

He said: "First of all, the most important thing is that I am happy. I am happy when I play and score goals.

"That’s the fact. That’s what I should take care of and the other things will come. I could be happy everywhere.

"I think of course the manager always has different ideas, different thoughts and what you need in different games, I think in many games I was not in his thoughts so I try to change that."

Sport Bild journalist Christian Falk tweeted that it was “TRUE” that the Magpies were interested in Werner.

But he added that competition would be stiff from the likes of Juventus.

Tuchel himself dismissed reports claiming that Werner was pushing to leave Chelsea, and that's perhaps why the Blues are offered at 4/5 to keep him.
