Newcastle face vital stumbling block in obstruction for Dan Ashworth's fourth summer deal

He scored an impressive 34 goals in his final season with Leipzig but has so far failed to replicate that form in England. He found the net just four times in 21 Premier League appearances last year while providing one assist.

Werner has struggled for regular minutes under Tuchel though and started less than half of Chelsea’s league games last year. And Raheem Sterling’s arrival will likely eat into Werner’s minutes even more for the upcoming season.

At Newcastle, Werner would likely be a guaranteed starter but Newcastle do have other options they could bring in to bolster their attacking options. Leicester duo James Maddison and Harvey Barnes are strongly linked to St James’ Park while Jack Harrison has also attracted interest from the Magpies.
