Chelsea great Zola: Lukaku? Werner under-appreciated for dirty job he does

Chelsea great Gianfranco Zola feels for Timo Werner over their pursuit of Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku.

Zola fears Werner being squeezed out if Lukaku arrives.

He said, "Chelsea played an extraordinary season last year but they always paid attention to the fact that they were missing a goal scorer, they often created scoring chances and in some games they were penalised enough.

"Lukaku arrives to fill that shortcoming but I liked Chelsea as it was: Werner did a dirty job for everyone else and the reason he won the Champions League is because he put others in a position to do well.

"I'm curious to see Lukaku, but I liked Chelsea as it was."
