Chelsea sent exciting Werner message, Havertz will not come cheap and cant compare Pulisic and Hazard for this reason
Lamps told Werner best position, Havertz will not come cheap, cant compare Hazard and Pulisic in Chelsea roundup..
Craig Burley has claimed that Christian Pulisic cannot be compared to Chelsea icon Eden Hazard,
Hazard took in 352 appearances for us over the course of a seven-year stay, with 110 goals and 92 assists recorded while Pulisic has nine goals and eight assists to his name this season.
And Burley is eager to point out that there is a long way to go before a star of the present can claim to have emulated one of the recent past.
He told ESPN FC: of the Pulisic praise: “They should take their heads out of the sand.
“Eden Hazard carried Chelsea for a long time, and got his move to Real Madrid.
“He’s a multiple league winner, and a hugely talented Belgian international. In the end, he was coveted by arguably the biggest club in the world – Real Madrid.
“It’s typical of the rationale – trying to compare people too early. Christian Pulisic is a huge talent, but he’s a young man.
“There’s no guarantee that come next season with all the new players coming in that he’ll get all the game time he needs.
“All he needs is two or three quiet games, and any manager worth his salt will have [Callum] Hudson-Odoi in, or he’ll have [Timo] Werner on the left, or Mason Mount.
“I think we need to go slowly with Christian Pulisic, it’s a learning curve for him, he’s doing great at the moment, but you can’t compare him to a player who literally carried one of the biggest teams in the Premier League for a few seasons.”
German football expert Raphael Honigstein thinks Leverkusen will not let Chelsea target Kai Havertz leave on the cheap this summer window.
Frank Lampard may have one of the most exciting and creative sides in the Premier League right now, but he will need to spend some money in the next couple of windows to improve the side in certain areas, and according to recent reports, we are now interested in trying to acquire the services of Havertz.
And earlier reports have revealed that owner Roman Abramovic will give the green light for the club to complete a deal for Havertz, but is not ready to pay that massive £90 million asking price that Leverkusen are reportedly seeking.[the_ad id=”164″]
Now Honigstein thinks Leverkusen will not let Havertz leave on the cheap this summer window
“Well Chelsea are among a number of clubs who are interested in Kai Havertz, why wouldn’t they be?” Honigstein said on BILD
“They are talking to him of course but that is no different from literally everybody who is talking to him. It comes down to the sticking point which is Leverkusen’s valuation.
“They want nothing less than €100million plus, maybe €120m for a player who is worth the money.
“But the current market doesn’t find clubs necessarily ready to put that much money on the table.”
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has been told by former RB Leipzig coach Jesse Marsch that Timo Werner can play in multiple positions up front.
Werner signed from the German side last month for £54million after another stunning season in which he netted an impressive 34 goals for the German side, a goal-tally that has got many clubs worried in the Premier League.
And ahead of his move to London, Marsch, who now manages RB Salzburg, says that Werner will be able to play with Tammy Abraham, as well as with another forward in a front three if necessary.
“He likes to drift to the left and then come in with his right,” Marsch told the Bleacher Report Football Ranks podcast
“He can drag the ball [out wide] and cross it or come across the goal as well.
“He’s also good at finishing crosses from the right side when he’s attacking in the box.
“But he’s also good in the middle and he’s good on the right, too.
“I think if you’re playing with two strikers, which is what we did often at Leipzig, we gave them freedom to move to the left.
“We built that in tactically so he could find ways to be on the move but dangerous.
“But he could play as a second striker, he could play on the right, he can play in a front three, he can play any of those positions.
“Again, he will work against the ball, he will defend, he’ll work for the team.
“And the other thing that’s so special about Timo is that for a guy who sprints so much in a game, he’s always healthy.
“And that’s unusual, those sprinters that are so aggressive, they pick up a lot of soft-tissue muscle injuries.
“Timo has been incredibly fit and hopefully he can stay that way.”
