Chelsea’s move for Kai Havertz seems to be legit, but that won’t stop the German star from continuing his campaign with Bayer Leverkusen in the Europa League.

Bayer hold a 3-1 advantage over Rangers from the Europa League first leg meeting, and Bayer manager Peter Bosz has revealed that the 21-year-old will be on display against the Scottish side on Thursday.

Bosz also insists he has no concerns over Kai Havertz’s commitment levels, despite being heavily linked with Chelsea.

“I will answer these questions very shortly,” said Bosz. “Yes, he will play and yes I’m convinced he’s 100 per cent still fighting for Leverkusen.”

Meanwhile, Manchester City midfielder and German international Ilkay Gundogan, has revealed that the Chelsea transfer target is already a better player than Chelsea great Michael Ballack.

He said: “In my opinion, Havertz is even better than Ballack in terms of his playing ability. Ballack had a certain level of aggression in his game, and a strong mentality.

“He was a top player of the previous generation – a b*d on the pitch, in a positive sense. Kai isn’t like that.”
