Timo Werner was conspicuous by his absence in the list of the players who have traveled to Italy for the friendly game against Udinese.
According to Chelsea’s official website, the German has remained at Cobham with the medical department. It’s not exactly clear what kind of concerns he has.
This comes amid reports that Werner might be willing to leave Chelsea, with Juventus opening talks with the Blues.
Still, it looks like that’s not the reason why the forward will not play today – at least if you believe the official information.
According to previous reports, the likes of Juventus and Newcastle United have inquired about the availability of the. German international, with multiple sources claiming the forward is not longer happy with his position under Thomas Tuchel.
