Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has been warned that signing Kai Havertz this summer shouldn’t be a priority for Chelsea.

According to ESPN pundit Gab Marcotti, Lampard may find it difficult to fit the midfielder into his squad.

“I suppose anything is possible,” Marcotti said.

“But I find it very difficult to see how now, having signed Ziyech, having got Mason Mount there, having signed Werner, now you would add Kai Havertz.

“It’s true that people still haven’t made up their mind on what position he will play when he ‘grows up’.

“Where do you fit a talent like him in there?

“It seems to me that at attacking midfield and at centre-forward, Chelsea are done right now.

“I certainly don’t see this being a priority, especially if Bayer Leverkusen are going to hold out [for big money].”
