Burley: Signing havertz would be a huge statement of intent

A Former Chelsea player believes if Chelsea signs Kai Havertz, then that would be sounding a warning to all other premier league teams.

Craig Burley said that his former club would be making a statement of intent should they also sign havertz from Leverkusen.

SOCCER PUNCH can confirm what the Ex Chelsea player told ESPN FC which read: "You can't have enough good players," 

"It would be a statement of intent to go out and get one of Europe’s most exciting young talents. 

"It does fit with the narrative that Chelsea and Lampard are going down.


"They are looking to sign younger players with sell-on value but who can also produce the goods now.


"If they get Werner, he can play wide or through the middle. Havertz is flexible as well. They may be a little top-heavy, in terms of their forward line.


"But it would be a statement from [Roman] Abramovich to say, 'we’ve given you Werner and we also want Havertz, one of the brightest talents in European football'.


"That’s a very exciting sign for Chelsea fans, but I doubt they will be in that race alone because Havertz is probably on everybody’s radar."
