Thomas Tuchel has come to the decision that Timo Werner will NOT be leaving Chelsea this summer.
Werner came under heavy fire last season after failing to make the impact many were expecting following a highly anticipated £47million switch from RB Leipzig.
In total, the Germany striker netted just 12 times in all competitions, adding 15 assists, and helping Chelsea win the Champions League and secure a top four finish.
However, what looked to be even more concerning was Werner's complete lack of confidence at times, as he lacked the composure and the killer edge he had been signed for.

As such, the 25-year-old has already been linked with a move away from Chelsea, with Erling Haaland and Harry Kane mooted as big-money replacements.
According to the Sun, new Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti has identified Werner as a potential transfer target this summer.
But Tuchel is not said to be interested in selling his fellow countryman, suggesting he may still play a big part next season.

Werner recently opened up on his disappointing first season with the Blues, and pointed to the number of chances he had ruled out by VAR.
The German believes his goalscoring problems at Chelsea were worsened by the video assistant referee, but is encouraged by a change to the controversial offside rules.
“I read that they want to make the VAR line thicker in England," he said.

"That would be good for me because then I would have 5 more goals this season.
"Basically the VAR is fine, and I say that, although I suffered most of it.“
With Ancelotti set to miss out on Werner, the Italian is reportedly looking at the possibility of a whopping £50m bid for Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

Ancelotti walked out on the Toffees to return to the Bernabeu earlier this month, and is now set to raid his former club, the report from the Sun earlier claims.
As part of his rebuilding project, Ancelotti is hoping that Everton's precarious financial situation may force them to cash in on Calvert-Lewin.
The club are said to have lost around £240m over the past two years, and Calvert-Lewin is one of their most sellable assets to raise funds.
