There has been some reports in the media which have suggested that Chelsea are looking at a deal for Leon Goretzka in a bid to get the very best of out Kai Havertz.
Chelsea beat off a whole load of clubs in the last transfer window in order to get Kai Havertz all signed up, with many believing that he had the potential to go on and be the next Eden Hazard at the Bridge.
However, he’s failed to live up to those expectations in his debut season in the Premier League, as ex-boss Frank Lampard struggled to work out Havertz’s best position while Thomas Tuchel has been unable to use the midfielder on a regular basis due to an injury.
Now there are reports that Chelsea are looking to try and snap up a possible deal for Goretzka.
WHAT HAS BEEN SAID?
The 26-year-old has enjoyed another strong season with Bayern Munich with his ability to be effective at both ends of the pitch, but Goretzka’s contract situation is yet to be resolved with the Bundesliga giants and his current deal expires in 2022.
That could make him available at a cut-price this summer with Bayern expected to undergo big changes with a number of players on expiring contracts.
And Goretzka’s close relationship with Havertz in the German national team could well be the answer for Chelsea in unlocking the 21-year-old’s full potential.
WILL CHELSEA GET THIS DEAL DONE?
Look, Havertz just needs time to get used to the Premier League, it is not easy for a young player to come to the English game and perform.
Goretzka is a very good player, but how many midfielders do Chelsea need? They already have an array of players that most bosses would love, so signing this man to get the best out of Havertz would not make sense.
