Chelsea target Kai Havertz has a predetermined fate for the Premier League, according to a team-mate.
Bayer Leverkusen’s left-back Wendell revealed Havertz, his side’s playmaker who has been linked with Chelsea, as well as Liverpool, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid desperately wants to test his mettle in English football.
Wendell said: “Havertz dreams of playing in the Premier League. If he goes there, he will learn a lot.
“That is his ambition and he will be a success if he decides to leave for England,” his current colleague told Spanish newspaper El Sol.
In another boost for the clubs eyeing his signature, Leverkusen’s sporting director Rudi Voller says the club have an agreement with Havertz which allows him to leave at the end of the current season so long as certain conditions are met.
We have an agreement – if it fits, he can go this summer. As of now, he is a player of ours. We have our ideas. We know what he can do.”
“I personally hope he stays one more year. Of course, you can’t force anyone. Havertz knows what he owes to his colleagues, the fans and the club,” Voller told German newspaper Bild.
