Former Chelsea player Alan Hudson has given up on new signing Timo Werner following his poor form over the course of the last few months. Alan Hudson spoke about Timo Werner in an exclusive interview with media outlet CaughtOffside as he said that a new striker in the form of Didier Drogba or Peter Osgood is needed at the club. According to him, England international Tammy Abraham is the Chelsea striker with the most similarities to Didier Drogba but the club needs an upgrade on him. Didier Drogba and Peter Osgood are Chelsea legends who became cult heroes at Stamford Bridge because of their striking ability.

Timo Werner was signed by Chelsea last summer in a £53m deal from RB Leipzig in the German Bundesliga and he started his Chelsea career but the German international has lost his way in recent months especially in the final weeks of the just ended Frank Lampard managerial reign. Frank Lampard was sacked as the Chelsea boss last month and replaced by German tactician Thomas Tuchel and the general consensus is that maybe he would be able to get the best out of Timo Werner. Timo Werner has already drawn comparisons with Fernando Torres, who flopped at Chelsea after the club splashed the sum of £50m on his transfer in January 2012.

Thomas Tuchel has been able to improve the form of the Chelsea players and that has led to improved results. Under Thomas Tuchel, Chelsea have recorded ten points from the first four games in the Premier League under his stewardship. The run of good form has seen Chelsea move up to fifth place and one point off Liverpool in the fourth and final Champions League slot. Timo Werner showed signs of life in the last league game, a 2-1 away win at Sheffield United. He produced a man-of-the-match display as he had a hand in the two Chelsea goals.
