Former Liverpool star Dietmar Hamann has compared Chelsea transfer target Kai Havertz to former Chelsea star Michael Ballack.

Hamann views Havertz as Germany’s best player and believes his ‘arrogance’ is similar to ex-Chelsea midfielder Ballack when he was developing in the game.

“The one player who stands out for me is Kai Havertz from Leverkusen” Hamann told Sky Sports when he was asked about Germany’s most talented player.

“He’s an exceptional player, he reminds me of a young Michael Ballack.

“He’s got that air of arrogance in a good way about him. He’s two-footed, he’s tall, he’s good in the air, he’s very versatile.

“He can play across the front, he can play any position. I think he’s the best player we’ve got in Germany at the moment.

“There’s talk about Timo Werner going to England, obviously he’s a different player, but Havertz is the one I’d be looking at.”
