Chelsea transfer target Kai Havertz 'dreams' of making move as fans told what to expect

Bayer Leverkusen defender Wendell claims his team-mate Kai Havertz “dreams” of playing in the Premier League amid strong links the midfielder will join Chelsea this summer.

Frank Lampard has already splashed the cash on Ajax ace Hakim Ziyech and RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner.

The Blues are expected to add more creativity to their side by making an approach for Havertz, who is valued at around £90million.

Leverkusen missed out on Champions League football next year as they finished fifth in the Bundesliga table.

That has only decreased their hopes of keeping hold of the 21-year-old and Wendell hinted a move will materialise at the end of the season.

“Psychologically, the Germans are very focused people,” Wendell said.

“They are very concentrated on what they want. If he goes to the Premier League, he will learn a lot.

“I think Kai dreams of playing there. He has that desire, and I think if he decides to play in England he will be a success.”

Chelsea fans may not have seen too much of Havertz in action so Wendell has explained what they can expect if he moves to Stamford Bridge.

“He’s a complete player,” the full-back added. “If you play him as a No 9 or No 10 a little bit behind, or if you put him out wide, he’ll know what to do.

“He has a facility to understand what the manager wants. He finishes well with both feet. He’s strong with his head, he has good technique.”

Meanwhile, former Liverpool midfielder Dietmar Hamann compared Havertz to a Chelsea icon.

“Obviously Jadon Sancho is one of the hottest properties but the player that stands out for me at the moment is Germany’s Kai Havertz,” he told Soccer AM last month.

“He’s playing up top at the moment as they have a couple of injuries – he’s a very versatile player.

“He reminds me of a young Michael Ballack, and I said this months or years ago. He’s just a brilliant player, he’s so flexible. He’s tall, he can hold the ball up, he’s physical, technically he’s very gifted. He’s perfect.

“He knows where the goal is, too, as he showed in the first two games after the break. His best position, at the moment he plays up top, I’d say it’s a number ten or a number eight. An attacking midfielder.”
