Timo Werner’s agent has met with three Serie A clubs as the Chelsea striker heads for a Stamford Bridge exit.
AC Milan, Juventus and Atalanta chiefs held talks with Volker Struth, Werner’s agent over a summer move, according to reports in Italy.
Werner has struggled since Chelsea shelled out £47.5million to bring him to the Premier League in 2020 after a prolific spell with RB Leipzig.

He has just 19 goals in 81 appearances and Chelsea fans are starting to become impatient after initially rallying behind the German forward.
Frustratingly for the West Londoners, Werner continues to bang in the goals for his country and will be sure to have plenty of suitors if an exit is sanctioned.
But there are two potential stumbling blocks — the 26-year-old’s bumper wages and uncertainty around Chelsea’s ability to sell players under their current licence with the UK Government.
Thomas Tuchel has lacked reliable options up front thanks to Werner’s failings and Romelu Lukaku struggling to live up to his £97.5m fee.
Kai Havertz has performed brilliantly after stepping in but once the club’s ownership is sorted, signing a striker will be a priority.
