'I'd be lying if I said I didn’t want Havertz at Chelsea' - Rudiger eager for 'talented' Leverkusen star to join Blues


Kai Havertz Bayer Leverkusen 2019-20

Antonio Rudiger has admitted that he is eager for Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Kai Havertz to join him at Chelsea.

Havertz has been tipped to secure a big-money move away from Bay Arena after a stellar 2019-20 campaign. The 21-year-old contributed 12 goals and six assists to Leverkusen's Bundesliga cause, as Peter Bosz's side narrowly missed out on Champions League qualification by finishing fifth.

He also found the net during the club's final outing of the season, beating Manuel Neuer from the penalty spot during their 4-2 DFB-Pokal final defeat to Bayern Munich on Saturday.

Havertz only has two years left to run on his current contract at Leverkusen, and the club's sporting directorVoller has revealed that an agreement has been reached for theinfluential figure to move onto pastures new this summer if certain conditions are met.

Real Madrid havebeen touted as the most likely next destination for the Germanplaymaker, but Bayern, Juventus, Chelsea and Manchester United are also reportedly interested in his services.

Rudiger has played alongside Havertzat international level, and hopes his compatriot will snub all other potential suitors in favour of continuinghis development at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues defender told Sky Germany: "Kai is talented, when I saw him train with the Germany national team I was like, 'wow!' I would be lying to you if I said I didn’t want him at Chelsea."

Bosz has addressed the ongoing speculation surrounding Havertz's future, expressing his belief that the Leverkusen star will stay put for at least one more season.

The Bay Arena head coach said before his side's domestic showpiecehumbling at the hands ofBayern:"I don't feel that he is thinking too much about transferring. Neither are we. I certainly don't have the impression that this will be his last game for the club."

However, Leverkusen defenderWendell says his team-mate already has his heart set on a move to the Premier League.
