Former Chelsea star Cesc Fabregas has revealed why he thinks Timo Werner is “tired” of struggling at Stamford Bridge.
The striker’s astonishing level at RB Leipzig catapulted the Blues to £53m in the summer of 2020.
Despite his tireless effort, the Germany international has earned a reputation for wasted opportunity, scoring only six times in the Premier League last season.
That poor number led Chelsea to pay £97.5m to Romelu Lukaku before this season, restricting Werner’s chances even more.
He got a chance to shine when the Belgian was forced out of last week’s Champions League match against Malmö, only to stumble during the match.
Werner scored only once in this campaign, and we still have to see if things are going well in west London.
But Fabregas, who has spent five years at Chelsea since 2014, has now given his opinion on why he did not choose Werner.
Today marked the 18th anniversary of the Spaniard’s debut with Arsenal and he decided to celebrate the occasion via Twitter Q&A.

One of the questions he was asked was his thoughts on Werner.
Fabregas replied: “He does a lot of good kicks but sometimes they either don’t see him or they don’t play the pass.
“He seems fed up at times.”
Chelsea coped well in the absence of Werner and Lukaku after recruiting Kai Havertz from abroad.
And crushed Norwich City 7-0 on Saturday in the league before advancing to the quarter-finals in the Carabao Cup by beating Southampton on penalties.
