Possible Chelsea signing ‘like Ballack and Ozil’ Lampard told ahead of possible £87m Havertz arrival

Owen Hargreaves has compared in-demand Bayer Leverkusen winger and Chelsea target Kai Havertz to Michael Ballack and Mesut Ozil.

Havertz is regarded as one of the finest talents in the game right now and has been constantly linked with a move to the Premier League at the end of the season, with Chelsea just one of the clubs that are reportedly keen on a transfer deal.

Now amid all the speculation, Hargreaves has paid tribute to the Germany international and compared him to Chelsea hero Ballack and current Arsenal star Ozil: ‘He is special,’ Hargreaves told Goal.

‘He is the next one. ‘I think all the best German players stay in the Bundesliga for a while and then they go to the Premier League or Barcelona or Real Madrid.

‘Marc-Andre Ter Stegen, Toni Kroos and Mesut Ozil all travelled and did well. These Bundesliga talents are in high demand as they are well schooled and good professionals. He is the next one.

‘All eyes are on Haaland and Sancho but Kai Havertz is the one from a German perspective. He is special and he is like a hybrid of Michael Ballack and Mesut Ozil.

‘That says a lot in terms of his goals and elegance.

‘He is a super player and I think many fans will be watching him from England’s top six and thinking that a guy like him is good enough to go to their teams. He could play at Liverpool, Man United or Man City.

‘I think anyone watching him this weekend [against Borussia Monchengladbach] will say sign him up.

‘I would love to see Havertz go to Bayern but I think anyone would want him in their team.’

Havertz is a very exciting young player that has more than a decade left in the game, so he would be a great investment for Chelsea at that £87 million that he is reportedly going for.

Will Chelsea make a move this summer? Probably. Will they pay that massive asking price? Probably not.

If Havertz is to leave Leverkusen, then the Germans need to lower that asking price as the coronavirus will mean that big deals may not happen.
