Havertz needs to buff up for PL: Podolski

Kai Havertz doesn’t have the power and shot for the Premier League, according to Lucas Podolski.

The German striker played for Arsenal for a brief period in the Premier League and was a moderate success in England. He has now commented on Chelsea’s chase for Germany’s promising hotshot Kai Havertz. 

“Why are you asking me about a Leverkusen player?” the 35-year-old joked to The Athletic. “I’m [a] Cologne [man] and they are our rivals along with Gladbach and Dusseldorf.

“[But] he’s a great talent. On the ball he is so creative, but he’s still young — let’s see if he can fit into the Premier League. I think he is still missing some strength and power, but he should taste the drink of the Premier League and see if he likes it.

“I did, but I knew I would like it. I’m strong, I have a good shot, I’m from the street, I’m like a pitbull. I knew I could deal with the Premier League with the long balls, the physical side and the referees. It was perfect for me and we had a good team and atmosphere at Arsenal.”

Chelsea are close to finalizing a deal for the Leverkusen star!
