Kai Havertz is ready for a big-money move to Chelsea, claims his former Bayer Leverkusen boss Tayfyn Korkut, who says the 21-year-old is an “ice man” with “special” ability.

A summer of big spending at Stamford Bridge shows no sign of slowing down, with Frank Lampard eager to bring even more top talent into his ranks. The Blues have already tied up deals for Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner and Ben Chilwell, while moves for Havertz and Thiago Silva are said to be in the pipeline.


Korkut is not surprised to see a player he once worked with at the Bundesliga giants attracting so much intention.

For him, Havertz has been destined to reach the top for some time, with the former Turkey international telling Sky Sports of a playmaker he coached at Leverkusen in 2017: “This is possibly the most special thing about him, his mental power.


“You will not see the difference in him whether he is playing against Ingolstadt or Real Madrid, whether he is playing to avoid relegation or win a championship. He will always plays the same and at a high level.

“Even at 17, he did not have ups and downs. It was not about the coach being brave, it was about the player. He gave me that feeling that he could play those big games and he could. He has this unbelievable mental strength. I do not know if it translates into English but he is like an ice man.

“When you watch him now, you cannot tell if he is under pressure. I don't know what he is feeling inside but he does not show it and that is an important quality if you want to be one of the best.

“Playing for big clubs is different. It is about mental toughness. There are a lot of nice young players out there. But to play for the biggest clubs. To play for Bayern Munich, Manchester United or Chelsea, you need to have something more than just talent. This boy has that.

“It is not about being able to shoot fantastically well or because he can play the final pass, even though he can do those things. It is because of these mental qualities. That is the difference.”


Havertz has been tipped to take another step up the footballing ladder for several years and Korkut thinks Chelsea will be getting quite the player if they are able to bring a long-running saga to a close.

than Leverkusen but he is already fantastically prepared.

“He has played in the Champions League. He was the top player in the Bundesliga. He is ready to play for any team in the world. Improve? What can you improve? Sometimes it is best to leave players like they are.

“I don't want to say he is the perfect player because I do not know if the perfect player exists, but he has all the tools to be a big player for the next three or four years. Very big. The boy is special.”
