CHELSEA TURNS ATTENTION ON INGS AS STAR SET FOR LOAN MOVE

CHELSEA TURNS ATTENTION ON INGS AS STAR SET FOR LOAN MOVE

Chelsea is in the market for a forward with Thomas Tuchel still undecided on Timo Werner after a disappointing first season in England.

The 25-year-old speedster was signed for £53 million by Chelsea 12 months ago but only managed six Premier League goals in his debut campaign.

With reports that Tammy Abraham is set to leave Stamford Bridge, the Chelsea hierarchy had earmarked Borussia Dortmund marksman Erling Haaland as their dream summer signing but talks look to have stalled and a deal appears unlikely.

The German side are unwilling to let their Norweigan prodigy leave Signal Iduna Park even if it means they lose out on £100 million from the sale; Haaland has a £65 million release clause that becomes active next summer.

Chelsea could turn their attention to Southamption striker Danny Ings if their pursuit of Erling Haaland is unsuccessful.

The Saints forward is entering the final year of his contract and might be available at a cut-price fee unless Ralph Hassenhuttel wants to risk losing him for free this time next year.

In the previous two seasons, Ings has hit double figures for a struggling Southampton side who finished 15th and 11th in the Premier League.

Chelsea look set to let one of their young stars leave on loan for a second successive season, with Conor Gallagher wanted on a year-long deal at Newcastle United.

The 21-year-old was a shining light at West Brom last campaign and caught the eye at the Hawthorns despite the Baggies eventual relegation.
