Former Chelsea striker Tony Cascarino has rated new Chelsea signing Kai Havertz as a better signing than Manchester United transfer target Jadon Sancho.

Havertz, 21, scored 36 goals and made 25 assists in 118 appearances for Bayer Leverkusen.

Discussing Havertz and Chelsea’s summer signings, Cascarino told The Times: “I cannot wait to see Kai Havertz, Timo Werner and Christian Pulisic leading the line for Chelsea.

“Frank Lampard’s team now have the most exciting front three in the Premier League and, whisper it, they have what it takes to be more prolific than Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino at Liverpool.

“Pulisic and Havertz are blessed with pace and great technique, and Werner is a lethal finisher.

“Havertz, in particular, is going to be a massive player for Chelsea. He is a better acquisition this summer than Jadon Sancho would be.”

Following his move to Stamford Bridge, Havertz said: “I am very happy and proud to be here. It is a dream come true to play in a big club like Chelsea.”
