Mesut Ozil and Michael Ballack are two big names to have come out from Germany, and it’s amazing that Blues target Kai Havertz, is being compared to the duo, despite being just 21.

Many believe Havertz has the skillset displayed by Ozil and Ballack, and his teammate Roberto Hilbert has also revealed that the Blues target is as good as the duo.

“He is the next big, big player to come from Germany. I was there when he made his debut in our team at 17,” Hilbert said, as quoted by Goal.

“In this generation, I think he will be a game-changer. He is a really smart player, quick and he is a nice person.

“He has some things Ballack had, some things Ozil had but he puts it into one package which is what makes him so dangerous.

“I think he has a level of talent that nobody else has. When Chelsea sign him for the next years then I think it will be a great chance to help them win titles in the Premier League.

“That’s how good he is. He worked hard, but he is a smart and humble person. That comes from his good family unit and he will continue to work hard and improve every day.”
