Didi Hamann has hailed Kai Havertz as ‘one of the best in the world’ and says the Chelsea forward ‘doesn’t know how good he is’.

Havertz has endured a mixed spell at Stamford Bridge since his £71m move from Bayer Leverkusen in 2020.

The Germany forward scored the winner in the 2021 Champions League final but his overall record in the final third – 31 goals in 127 games – is not particularly impressive.

Havertz has flattered to deceive for much of the season, although he may be finally finding some form having scored in his last two appearances.

Hamann says Havertz has been ‘fantastic’ in recent weeks and claims the 23-year-old is ‘one of the best in the world’.

‘I think Kai Havertz has been fantastic,’ the ex-Liverpool and Germany midfielder told BestGamblingSites.

‘What helps him is Mudryk being at the club now because he takes a bit of pressure and weight off his shoulders because he’s got another player who can create something and he’s such a smart player.

‘He has played as a centre forward at times, which is probably not his preferred role, but he can play there. And with him I just feel that he doesn’t know how good he is because for me, he’s one of the best in the world.

‘It may sound harsh saying this because he scored a winner in a Champions League final and he has done well for Chelsea, but I just feel he could do so much more because that’s how good he is.

‘In the last few weeks he’s really come to the fore and, you know, maybe he’s adapted more to the club. He’s a fantastic player.’

Havertz’s recent goals helped Chelsea reach the Champions League quarter-finals at the expense of Borussia Dortmund and clinch a much-needed Premier League victory over Leicester City.

The Blues remain just 10th in the Premier League – 11 points outside the top-four – ahead of Saturday’s clash against Everton.
