Volker Struth, the agent of Timo Werner and other players, has been busy in Italy this week meeting a number of Serie A clubs including AC Milan and juventus
The Sports360 boss has been traveling and keeping his Instagram followers up to date, posting pictures with Juve football director Federico Cherubini, in Milan after meeting sporting director Frederic Massara and in Bergamo with Atalanta recruiting chief Lee Congerton.
Struth’s agency Sport360 represents many players including Julian Weigl, Toni Kroos, Amadou Haidara and Mohamed Camara but with Werner’s future at Chelsea uncertain there will be rumors of the German moving to Italy.
The Express reports the Blues are willing to listen to offers for Werner over the summer – so long as they return to trading normally under new owners after their current sanctions have been lifted.
The 26-year-old arrived with plenty of hype in 2020 when he was signed from RB Leipzig for £47.5m but was a disappointment for the Blues.
The Germany international scored six goals in a stunning first season in the Premier League and was set to play from there but has netted just once in the league so far this season.
Werner is also reportedly very open to a move elsewhere to get his career back on track, with a Bundesliga return a possibility.
Borussia Dortmund have been linked with a move for the striker and Struth have already held informal talks with the German side about a move.
While on international duty with Germany last week, Werner admitted he is struggling with Chelsea and prefers life in the national team to his employer.
“I’m a striker and I always want to score,” he said after scoring against Israel. “Things are not going as well as I would like at Chelsea, so it’s all the better that things are going well here under Hansi Flick.
“I really enjoy playing football, no matter where I play. There are differences in the way football is played between Chelsea and here. Maybe the one with the national team suits me better. I always have chances to score here, I can score goals. I feel very comfortable here.”
