Chelsea have been strongly linked with a move for Bayer Leverkusen star Kai Havertz, and the 21-year-old is believed to be the next on Chelsea’s list after the signing of Timo Werner.

Havertz have been in top form this season, and the young German is gaining massive interest from top European clubs like Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Manchester United.

Meanwhile, former Liverpool midfielder Dietmar Hamann believes Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Kai Havertz should seal a summer transfer switch to Chelsea, and he believes that Chelsea will be the best place for the young attacking midfielder.

“When a player like Kai Havertz changes clubs and signs somewhere for five years, the long-term perspective is more important,” he told Sky Sports Germany.

“Perspective is important for a player, but Manchester [United] has been bobbing in a vacuum for years.

“On the other hand, if I look at Chelsea, they have a coach with Frank Lampard who did a great job for the club as a player – and I have the feeling that the Blues are growing again after a long time.

“For the first time in a long time, you have a team with which the fans can really identify.

“If a Timo Werner or possibly a Kai Havertz were to be added, it would be an incredibly exciting and interesting story.

“If I think about where I see the clubs now, and in two or three years, the decision for Chelsea would be a relatively easy one for me as a player.”
