The playmaker has been tracked by host top clubs across the Europe with Chelsea reportedly leading the race to sign the German star and Carro admits the player is likely to want to leave soon.

Chelsea plotting shock move Cristiano Ronaldo
Chelsea are reportedly plotting a shock for Cristiano Ronaldo, who netted 451 goals in 438 appearances for Real Madrid.
Ronaldo, 35, who is in second season at Juventus after a hugely successful time at Spanish capital, it is reported that the Blues are ready to launch €120million (£107m) move to sign the Portuguese star,according to multiple reports.
Netting 28 goals in his first season in Turin, the 35-year-old looks on course to beat his previous total as he already has 25 to his name this campaign.
The ex-Manchester United man would guarantee goals but it would be a major shock if Lampard and Chelsea elected to move for him given his age and the amount it would cost to sign him.
Timo Werner to play in Champions League?
Timo Werner may well be able to play for Chelsea this season. The Blues are closing in on signing the striker from RB Leipzig, who he has already played for in the Champions League this season.
Yet UEFA removed cup tie rules for European competition in 2018 after Philippe Coutinho was forced to sit out Barcelona’s Champions League campaign following a January move from Liverpool.
The coronavirus postponement means the summer transfer window could well open before the Champions League’s resumption in August, when the competition is set to be completed in a World Cup-style end-of-season tournament.
That could well see Werner complete a move to Stamford Bridge before the competition resumes – with reports overnight claiming that he would prefer to play for Chelsea instead of Leipzig in the remaining fixtures.
UEFA are set to meet tomorrow to discuss registration rules regarding the remaining games and Werner could well be high on the list of topics.
