Timo Werner’s arrival will ‘spell the end’ for Tammy Abraham at Chelsea, Liverpool legend Steve Nicol has warned. Werner has been linked with a host of top clubs but it is being widely reported Chelsea have won the race to sign him for around £50m from RB Leipzig. While the deal is a major boost for Frank Lampard who has been keen to add firepower to his squad, Nicol thinks it could come at a cost for former Aston Villa loanee Abraham.
Steve Nicol said “I don’t believe Frank and Chelsea are going to change the way they play. And you have to say that signing Werner would spell the end for Tammy Abraham. I mean goodness knows what is going through his head. Allegedly Frank has been telling Werner that he is going to build the team around him so you don’t build your team around a wide midfielder. You build through the spine so that means straight away that Tammy Abraham is in trouble.”
