German opens up and tells Lampard £87 million midfielder Havertz ‘will improve’ his Chelsea side
Bayer Leverkusen’s rising star Kai Havertz would improve any Premier League team amid Chelsea and Manchester United links., Didi Hamann told The Football Show.
Havertz is making a real name for himself over in the Bundesliga and his performances for the German side has meant that the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United and Arsenal are all reportedly interested in a potential deal.
The trio know that they need to start spending some serious money in order to get back into the habit of challenging for Champions League and Premier League titles, and the £87 million Havertz is seen as an ideal creative force for the three.
Former Liverpool and Germany midfielder Hamann, now a pundit with Sky Germany, said he expected the 20-year-old to move on this summer and suggested Bayern Munich, Real Madrid or Barcelona could be a potential destination – but added he would prove a shrewd addition for any Premier League side.
He said: “I think a lot of Premier League clubs will be interested in him, he’s a terrific player and there’s not many better around at the moment.
“If you look at Manchester United, it’s very clear they need new personnel going forward, and I think he’d improve pretty much every team. Liverpool are a bit different with the way they set-up and play, but besides that I think he improves every team.
“Before the break people were talking about three figures, a hundred-odd million, if that’s a price any club is prepared to pay in the summer, I’m not sure, but the likelihood is he will leave Leverkusen and take on another challenge in the summer.”
Look, if Havertz does leave the Bundesliga side in the summer, then the Premier League would love to welcome the man to the club as he is just the type of exciting player that English fans will love to see on a weekly basis.
If he comes onto the market there will be alot of interest and it will be very interesting to see how much he goes for and which club he joins, as they step up is inevitable.
