Chelsea have been linked with a move for Bayer Leverkusen wonderkid Kai Havertz, and the Blues must be willing to cough up some huge figures if they must sign up the 20-year-old.

Havertz has impressed massively this season, and former Liverpool midfielder Don Hutchison rates Havertz as a better version of Arsenal star Mesut Ozil and is confident that the prodigy would be a great signing for any top club.

“I think he’s far too good for Leverkusen,” the 49-year-old told ESPN. “I think he goes to the very biggest clubs in Europe and I think he walks into most sides. He’s certainly got to fight for his place but the talent’s there at 20 years of age.

“The one player I would liken him to is a taller, faster version of Mesut Ozil. I think he plays off the left-hand side, through the middle, he’s predominantly left-footed, he’s very silky, easy on the eye.”

Chelsea have been linked with a move for two attacking midfielders, Philippe Countinho and Kai Havertz, and Chelsea fans are arguing over which of the two will make a better signing.
