Tottenham Hotspur signed Timo Werner on a short-term loan deal from RB Leipzig in January but it looks like the Tottenham boss wants him to remain at the club beyond the summer.
So far, the 27-year-old has played in only four Premier League games for the club but according to reports, Postecoglou is happy with what he is seeing. Werner’s loan deal has a permanent purchase clause and the Spurs manager is ready to trigger this option.
Timo Werner has provided 2 assists in the 317 minutes of league football that he has played and so far, the German international has done fairly well.
Obviously, he had been getting a lot of game time because Son was off on international duty but it will be interesting to see how he performs now that the South Korean has returned to the club.
Against Brighton, Werner started on the left wing with Son coming off the bench but that won’t be the same throughout the second half, that’s for sure. Heung-Min Son has scored 12 and assisted six goals in 21 Premier League games this season so there’s no way he will be a substitute every weekend.
Timo Werner scored 23 goals in 89 appearances for Chelsea from 2020 until 2022 but overall his time at the Bridge was massively underwhelming. While he has started his loan stint with Tottenham on a much more positive note, it’s still early days and Postecoglou needs to wait until the end of the season before he decides to hold onto Timo Werner.
Tottenham are looking at other players like Nico Williams and Raphinha for a summer upgrade but Timo Werner is valued at only €17 million maybe that’s why the North London side is so enticed to hold onto him permanently.
