Timo Werner’s agent insists he will stay at Chelsea despite being linked with a summer move away from Stamford Bridge and even emerging as a shock target for Real Madrid.

Germany international Werner endured a mixed first season at Chelsea, struggling in front of goal with just 12 goals in 52 club appearances but helping Thomas Tuchel’s side win the Champions League.

Werner penned a five-year deal at Stamford Bridge after signing from RB Leipzig in the summer of 2020 but is already being linked with another move.

Last week, it was reported that new Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti was considering a move for Werner as he looks to rebuild the squad at the Bernabeu.

But Werner is ‘comfortable’ at Chelsea and will be staying in west London, according to his agent Karlheinz Forsterbe.

‘You can’t rule out anything, but if I had to assess it at the moment, then I would say very clearly that Timo will stay at Chelsea,’ he told Sport1.

‘He feels comfortable there. A move will not be an issue in the foreseeable future.’

Werner thrived under new Bayern Munich coach Julian Nagelsmann at RB Leipzig and his agent was asked whether he could be lured to the Bavarian club as a result.

He added: ‘Julian let Timo play in a different position at Leipzig. A bit like Thomas Muller at Bayern. Julian and Timo appreciate each other.

‘Of course, I don’t yet know what will happen in three or four years. Football is fast moving.’

Werner, meanwhile, was asked if he wanted to stay at Chelsea ahead of the Champions League final against Manchester City last month and said: ‘Of course.

‘In terms of scoring and missing chances, it was the worst season. But in the end I still have 27 goal contributions.

‘I think I’m the first in our team for that, so it was not everything bad and I don’t think about leaving the club this year, for sure not.

‘And also for the next year because I think we have a very good team and I hope to come back to scoring and that I can do everything that’s expected of me.’
