Chelsea striker Timo Werner has responded to talk of him leaving the Premier League club after just one season.
Werner joined the Blues from RB Leipzig ahead of this campaign after registering an impressive 34 goals and 13 assists in the 2019/20 season.
The German's first year at Stamford Bridge has not been as glorious as he would have hoped after racking up only 12 goals across all competitions to date, but he has no plans to leave any time soon.
"Of course. In terms of scoring and missing chances, it was the worst season, but in the end I still have 27 goal contributions," Werner told the Daily Telegraph when asked if he expects to still be at Chelsea next season.
"I think I'm the first in our team for that, so it was not everything bad and I don't think about leaving the club this year, for sure not, and also for the next year because I think we have a very good team and I hope to come back to scoring and that I can do everything that's expected of me.
"I think a lot of people's expectations for me, outside the club but also inside the club, were very high because of my goalscoring record.
"I also assisted many goals last year in my old club, but I think the main reason why they brought me here in the club is to score and maybe at the end 12 goals, and six goals in the Premier League, that's not good enough.
"You have to say that I have 12 goals and 15 assists or something like that in every competition, and 27 goal contributions, that's not so bad in what's maybe my unluckiest season, maybe my worst season I've had for many years.
"If I'm scoring next season, hopefully, maybe people will become happier with me."
