Timo Werner wasn’t among the list of Chelsea players who made the trip to Italy for the friendly game against Udinese.

The club’s official website, had claimed that the German has remained  at Cobham with the medical department due to a minor knock.

However, reports out there claim that it may not be unrelated to a transfer exit for the German international.

With reports claiming that Werner is open to leaving Chelsea, Juventus are among the clubs with a strong interest in the Chelsea star.
