Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger has high hopes to welcome another countryman at Stamford Bridge next season. The Blues have already secured the signing of Timo Werner from RB Leipzig and are reportedly very interested in signing Bayer Leverkusen‘s wonderkid Kai Havertz. If it was up to Rudiger, Chelsea will sign the German midfielder.
“Kai is talented, when I saw him train with the Germany national team I was like, ‘wow!”, Rudiger told Sky Germany. “I would be lying to you if I said I didn’t want him at Chelsea.” Earlier on Rudiger told he had played a part in the transfer of Werner to London, stating he had both advised his club and the striker to complete a transfer.
Reports from England have claimed that Chelsea are currently preparing a bid for Havertz, who played the DFB Cup Final with Leverkusen on Saturday (4-1 loss to Bayern Munich). The German side is looking for a €100m transfer fee for Havertz, who will be allowed to leave Leverkusen if an interested club meets the club’s demands, sporting director Rudi Voller admitted.
