Dimitar Berbatov believes Kai Havertz will be an ‘amazing’ signing for Chelsea but thinks the Blues should make a move for Jan Oblak. Frank Lampard has already been a busy man in the transfer window open the past few months and look set to make another top-class signing, with Havertz the latest player that is seemingly heading to the club this summer.
Reports have claimed that Chelsea are locked in transfer talks over a deal for the German, and just need to negotiate a fee with Bayer Leverkusen before the deal can officially be announced.
But there is another area of the pitch that Frank Lampard needs to improve on and that is the stopper area, as reports suggested that he is not happy with Kepa and will look to add an elite goalkeeper to the squad this summer.
And although Berbatov has claimed that Havertz will be an amazing signing, he thinks Jan Oblak would be the ideal signing to solve their issues between the sticks ahead of next season.
‘They for sure need a goalkeeper and Jan Oblak would be a great option,’ Berbatov told Betfair. ‘Timo Werner was a good deal, and Willian looks like he might stay if they win the FA Cup.
‘There are still rumours about Kai Havertz who would be an amazing player for them.’ Look, Oblak is one of the very best stoppers in the game right now and Chelsea will be very luck to nail down his services, especially as he will cost £110 million to acquire from Madrid.
So when Havertz signs up, it will be interesting to see what stopper arrives as Lampard will surely replace Spaniard Kepa this transfer window, he is not the stopper that Chelsea hoped he was when they broke the record just a few seasons ago.
