Werner, however, is an acceptable replacement and should be commended for his performance in the Bundesliga.
Chelsea might have to be flexible in his playing style if he wants to get the most out of him.
Instead of forcing him into a position between two centre-backs from the opposition and waiting for an opportunity to speak for him, perhaps they can change their minds and allow him to relax a little.
Haaland is expected to be available next summer for around PS64m. Chelsea has a better chance of signing him within a year.
