Juventus are reportedly interested in signing Chelsea forward Timo Werner, who is also a target for Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund.

According to a report by Spanish outlet Fichajes, Timo Werner remains a highly sought-after player in the transfer market despite struggling to perform consistently for Chelsea. The German forward is the subject of interest from Juventus, who have joined Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund in his pursuit.

Timo Werner joined Chelsea from RB Leipzig in the summer of 2020, arriving at Stamford Bridge as the supposed long-term solution in attack. However, the 25-year-old experienced some major teething problems last term, even though he was among the top scorers for the Blues.

To make matters worse, the arrival of Romelu Lukaku has restricted his game-time severely, with Werner being rotated with Kai Havertz and Hakim Ziyech a fair bit. To date, the German forward has made 60 appearances for Chelsea while amassing a tally of 14 goals and 11 assists along the way.

Werner, though, is now considering his future at Chelsea, as per recent reports, and such a development has now piqued the interest of some of the biggest clubs in Europe. One of his suitors are Serie A giants Juventus.

The interest from Juventus is understandable, considering they lost a lot of goals following the exit of Cristiano Ronaldo in the summer. As a result, the Bianconeri have been linked with several attacking players in recent times, including Alexandre Lacazette, Bukayo Saka and Marco Asensio.

Werner, to that end, is a viable target for the Serie A heavyweights, although they are also facing stiff competition from Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund in pursuit of the Chelsea forward. As for Juventus they value his versatility as Werner can also be deployed out wide in addition to being a central striker.

What now remains to be seen is if Werner indeed chooses to call it quits at Chelsea in a future transfer window or if he stays put at the club. The 25-year-old, though, will hope that his recent display against Southampton can help turn his fortunes around for good at Stamford Bridge after a difficult start to the season.
