Former Chelsea striker Tony Cascarino believes Kai Havertz is going to be a better signing than Jadon Sancho would be for Manchester United.
The highly-rated German playmaker has been taken to Stamford Bridge in a £70 million deal.
Chelsea are set to be the ones to benefit from that, with a hot prospect forming part of an elaborate summer spending spree from Frank Lampard.
“I cannot wait to see Kai Havertz, Timo Werner and Christian Pulisic leading the line for Chelsea,” Cascarino told The Times. “Frank Lampard’s team now have the most exciting front three in the Premier League and, whisper it, they have what it takes to be more prolific than Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino at Liverpool. [Christian] Pulisic and Havertz are blessed with pace and great technique, and [Timo] Werner is a lethal finisher.
“Havertz, in particular, is going to be a massive player for Chelsea. He is a better acquisition this summer than Jadon Sancho would be.”
