​Real Madrid boss Ancelotti targeting shock move for Chelsea striker Werner

Chelsea striker Timo Werner is a surprising target for Spanish giants Real Madrid.

Los Blancos, who are now managed by Carlo Ancelotti, are interested in the speedy German.

Werner had a mixed debut season with Chelsea, struggling for goals at various stages of the campaign.

But he did help his side lift the Champions League trophy in May, playing a crucial part in their road to the final and eventual victory.

According to Spanish outlet Fichajes, Werner is a serious target for Real, as they believe he is available for a lower fee than what Chelsea paid RB Leipzig last summer.

Werner managed 12 goals and 15 assists in 52 games for the club last term.
