Antonio Rudiger admits he wants Kai Havertz to join him at Chelsea and says he has been blown away by his Germany team-mate’s quality.
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, especially with the likes of Willian and Pedro seemingly on their way out of the club.
That has led to the speculation in the media that Havertz, who is valued at around the £89 million mark, is now top of the shopping list of Chelsea boss Frank Lampard, who is reportedly a huge fan of the midfielder.
Rudiger knows exactly what Havertz is capable of having played alongside him for Germany and admits he would love to welcome the £89million star to Stamford Bridge.
Asked about transfer target Havertz, Rudiger 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.’
Sure most clubs in the Premier League would love to add the man to their squads, but look, at the end of the day we have already proven that if they want to sign players, we will open talks and get something agreed, they are not waiting until the transfer window opens up
Havertz is a very gifted player that most of us fans would love to see arrive, by with the attacking quality, is it not time to improve the back-line first?
