Chelsea spent almost £120m on German duo Timo Werner and Kai Havertz during last summer transfer window, in order to boost the team’s attack.
The season didn’t start on a bright note for Kai Havertz, as Covid-19 coupled with a lack of form and struggle to adapt to the Premier League disrupted his game. For Werner, he started out fine but struggled after an initial good start as he kept on missing chances after chances.
Former Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has backed the duo to come out good next season.
Fabregas wrote in a column for the Daily Telegraph: “I’ve followed the first seasons of the club’s two big German signings, Kai Havertz and Timo Werner, very closely and I am convinced next season we will start to really see the best of them.
“As a midfielder who likes to make assists, I have played behind strikers before who are going through a bad time or suffering with their confidence.
“It’s a bit of both that it can be frustrating that they miss chances, but I would also be thinking at some time Werner will score.
“The most important thing is that he keeps making the runs, that his timing is good, that he’s not offside and with his speed he will always get chances.”
