Antonio Rudiger had a big hand in bringing Timo Werner to Chelsea. Perhaps, he might succeed in doing the same with Kai Havertz.
The Blues defender has talked up Havertz as constant links draw him closer to North London.
Bayer Leverkusen has accepted that Havertz might move on this summer with multiple outlets gunning for his signature. Chelsea are currently the favourites but Bayern Munich are equally strong in the chase for midfield reinforcements. Havertz brims with top-level quality, showcasing his talents at various positions under Peter Bosz.
Rudiger wants to see his international teammate in Chelsea colours as he told Sky Germany, “Kai is talented, when I saw him train with the Germany national team I was like, ‘wow!'”
“I would be lying to you if I said I didn’t want him at Chelsea.”
Havertz would no doubt, be an immediate upgrade to Chelsea’s current midfield numbers. He is proven in various positions and could man Chelsea’s creative lineup for years. Reports claim that he would cost anywhere around £80-100 million, based on his current valuation.
Frank Lampard has been greatly boosted by the transfer backup provided to him after just one season in charge. He is prepping a squad based around youth, something which has been missing at Chelsea in the Roman Abramovich-era. Havertz fits the bill perfectly with quality, age and pedigree to back him up.
Let’s hope Rudiger can play super agent and convince the 21-year-old into moving to the Stamford Bridge.
