Stamford Bridge has undoubtedly being the favourable destination for Havertz since the club made their intention known to the player. With Frank Lampard spearheading a rebuilding process, along with some quality additions, Chelsea have already announced the signings of Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech, with Ben Chilwell, Thiago Silva and Kai Havertz being speculated to be closing in on a move to Stamford Bridge this summer.
Frank Lampard has had to rely on Mason Mount (6 – assists), Kovacic(3), Ross Barkley(4) for through the middle, which hasn’t been impressive enough to provide goalscoring opportunities for the attackers.
Kai Havertz is a technically gifted and two-footed midfielder, who is comfortable with the ball on either foot, great in passing, through balls, finishing, dribbling, keeping possession of the ball and adept with his head.
He likes to do layoffs, likes to cut inside onto his strong foot while playing from the wings, and he’s also a threat on counter attack.
Though his defensive contributions and tackling are susceptible due to his lanky frame but his high technical skills plays to his advantage.
His cleverness, natural talent, presence on the pitch and goal threat are highly commendable and will surely make a huge difference in Chelsea’s attacking football next season.
Though the youngster is yet to put a pen on his reported five-year contract but that seems to be getting closer as the deal might be concluded in the coming days.
