New signing Kai Havertz has been lavished with praise by his former employers – who expect him to go all the way to the Premier League.
Bayer Leverkusen’s sporting director Rudi Voller was gushing in his praise of the departed Havertz, who became Chelsea’s second most expensive signing when he put pen to paper in a £71 million deal.
And former striker Voller believes the attacking midfielder is the real deal in comments which will excite Blues fans.
He said: “Kai Havertz is already world class, certainly one of the best to have ever played for Bayer 04.
“In the coming years, Kai will prove what a great footballer he is in the extremely demanding English league
