Rudiger: Of course I want Havertz at Chelsea!

Chelsea defender Toni Rudiger is backing their move for Bayer Leverkusen attacker Kai Havertz.

Havertz has been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge and Rudiger is hoping his German compatriot will sign for Chelsea.

Asked about Chelsea transfer target Havertz, Rudiger told Sky Deutschland: "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."

Leverkusen chiefs will be soon meeting with star man Havertz, with the youngster keen to discuss his future amid Chelsea interest.
