Timo Werner believes Kai Havertz as ‘one of the most talented players in the world’ and has backed his Chelsea team-mate to get ‘better and better’ with the Blues.

Striker Werner believes Havertz already boasts wisdom beyond his 22 years of age, backing the Blues playmaker to improve rapidly as he is close to finding his boot.

Havertz is viewed as a star in the making after his impressive end of season performance for Chelsea, scoring a match-winning-goal for the west London club in the 2020/21 Champions League tournament.

I know Kai very well and I think he is one of the most talented players in the whole world,” said Werner.

In a lot of games he has shown what he can do, what he can bring to the team. For Kai it is very important to score, but I think what you can see in his game he is a lot more than scoring goals as a midfield player.

“He plays a lot of key passes, makes a lot of movement for other players. He is very talented and feels good.

“He will get better and better, like me he has come to a new country, language and style of football and has to learn. But until now he plays very good and we will see a lot more good games from him.”
