Werner has only one goal to his name this season in the Premier League, netting against Southampton, his first league goal since April against West Ham.

Werner, who is currently away with Germany on international duty, spoke about his future recently amid links of a return to the Bundesliga. 

“I don’t know anything about the deadline," he said over his future. "Of course, I can’t be satisfied if I don’t play. Of course, I want to be a regular in a big team.

“But I’m not saying that if I don’t start 10 or 15 games before Christmas, I really want to leave. Things happen relatively quickly in football. I have to look at the bigger picture to make my decision.”

There have been claims that Werner would reconsider his future at Chelsea if he couldn't break his way into Thomas Tuchel's plans to become a regular starter at Stamford Bridge.
