Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger is believed to have played a key role in Chelsea’s quest to sign Timo Werner.
The Blues recently triggered the release clause of the German star, and the 24-year-old is set to agree terms on a five-year deal with Chelsea.
Rudiger helped Chelsea boss Frank Lampard in the move by constantly messaging Werner about a likely move to Chelsea.
And now, Chelsea fans believe that agent Rudiger is set to do another task with a fellow German national teammate, Kai Havertz.
Havertz is top on Chelsea’s list, and the Blues must face strong competition from Europe’s biggest clubs if they want to make the signing.
Today marked Kai Havertz birthday, and Rudiger sent a message via twitter that read: “Happy Birthday my brother @kaihavertz29”
Fans were quick to notice his kind words to the Chelsea target, suggesting it was a ploy to encourage Havertz to agree to a future at Stamford Bridge.
One Chelsea fan said: “Rudiger getting our transfer targets.”
One fan said: “He knows exactly what he’s doing, I’m convinced.”
Another wrote: “Already secured us Werner and now on to Havertz! Agent Rudi is back.”
