Mateo Kovacic makes bold Kai Havertz and Timo Werner predictions that Chelsea fans will love

Chelsea midfielder Mateo Kovacic is backing Kai Havertz and Timo Werner to become “the future” of the club as the end of their maiden season in England approaches.

Havertz and Werner arrived at Stamford Bridge last summer as part of a remarkable summer transfer window that saw the Blues, who face Leicester City in the FA Cup final at Wembley on Saturday, draft in seven new additions.

Werner arrived in mid-June for a fee of around £50million, while Havertz arrived in west London just a week ahead of the Premier League campaign getting underway in an initial £72million deal from Bayer Leverkusen.

Both players’ arrivals in west London were met with a wave of excitement after they had both shone brightly in the Bundesliga during the 2019/20 campaign.

Nevertheless, following Thomas Tuchel’s arrival at Stamford Bridge towards the end of January, the duo have shown signs of improvement, especially Havertz, who has scored three goals in his last eight matches.

Although they both still have a lot to prove, Kovacic is confident that they can both kick-on next season and become stars at Stamford Bridge for years to come.

Kovacic told Chelsea TV: “Obviously the two German guys came in, Kai [Havertz] and Timo [Werner], so I could help them, because it is not easy to come to such a big club in such a tough league.

“I think they adapted quite well and are now playing better and better. They are the future of this club, especially Kai, because, for me, he is an unbelievable talent and I think he will be a great, great player for Chelsea and for football in general.”

Chelsea fans will share that hope, although the duo still have a lot of work…
