CHELSEA are willing to offer Timo Werner as part of a deal to land Dortmund striker Erling Haaland, reports claim.
The Blues have joined the long queue for 20-year-old striker Haaland's services with Manchester United and Manchester City also keen.
And Football Insider report that a swap deal with misfiring striker Werner is on the table.
Haaland would likely set clubs back upwards of £120million to sign this summer.
But Chelsea could try a part-exchange deal to knock some millions off the fee, with Werner going the other way.
Werner, 25, has struggled since his £45million move from Red Bull Leipzig in the summer.
The German forward has scored just one Premier League goal since November – in the 2-0 win over Newcastle on February 15.
Haaland, meanwhile, has a £66million release clause that comes into effect in 2022 but the Bundesliga giants could be open to selling him this summer.
