Timo Werner believes Kai Havertz is one of the most talented players in the world but warned that his Chelsea and Germany is still on a sharp developmental curve.
Speaking before tomorrow night’s Champions League Group E game against Rennes, Werner said that his 21-year-old compatriot has settled in well at West London.
However, he is only going to get “better and better” having produced his two most impressive performances in the past week – in the wins away to Krasnodar and Burnley.
“I know Kai very well and I think he is one of the most talented players in the whole world,” Werner said. “He is a young boy, only 21 and he can learn a lot but he can already play like a very, very old and wise player.
“I think up until now he feels very well here. A bit like me. We have talked a lot about settling in and he feels he is very happy to be here. 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 but 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.”
