Transfer: You’re not good for EPL, go to LaLiga or Bundesliga – Agbonlahor slams Chelsea star: Former Aston Villa striker, Gabby Agbonlahor has hit out at Chelsea forward, Timo Werner, saying that the Germany international is not good enough for the Premier League.
Agbonlahor also told Werner to leave the Premier League for LaLiga or return to the German Bundesliga.
He also claimed that Newcastle United would be making a mistake signing Werner this summer, adding that Callum Wilson is better than him.
Ayogentv reports that Chelsea is open to selling Werner this summer.
Werner is currently not happy at Stamford Bridge due to his lack of regular playing time under manager Thomas Tuchel.
The 26-year-old has been linked with a move to Newcastle United and Juventus this summer.
“Not for me,” Agbonlahor told Football Insider.
“I think Newcastle would be stupid to bring him in. Where Newcastle want to be going, they don’t want to be signing Chelsea rejects.
“He’s not good enough, he doesn’t score goals.
“Callum Wilson is better than Timo Werner, it just doesn’t make sense. The wages he will want, the fee – it doesn’t make sense.
“Werner, for me, should be headed to La Liga or back to the Bundesliga. He’s not good enough for the Premier League.”
