Germany forward Timo Werner has admitted he is not happy with his playing time at Chelsea.

The 25-year-old has been limited to just 298 minutes of Premier League football this season and is yet to make an appearance in the Champions League.

When asked about his current situation at the London club, the former RB Leipzig striker told Express.de:

"The last weeks at Chelsea have been difficult for me. I fell behind and had to fight my way back. In a career, things always go up and down, never steadily up. But you learn to deal with it. I have to force my way back in, and that's what challenges me. Of course I want more playing time, so I'm giving everything in training.

"Of course I can't be satisfied if I don't play. Of course I want to be a regular starter for a big team. But I'm not saying I'm desperate to leave if I don't start 10 or 15 games before Christmas. In football, things change relatively quickly. I have to look at the big picture to make my decision."
