Chelsea have signed ‘Pro Kai Hervertz’ on £65 million German International

 Jason Cundy is confident CHELSEA have signed a major upgrade on Kai Havertz in the form of Cole Palmer.

The 21-year-old came through the youth ranks with the Premier League champions and looked set to have a breakout season in their first team, after being given the nob by boss Pep Guardiola.

However – he shocked many in the Premier League on deadline day when he decided to leave the Treble winners and make the move to Stamford Bridge, where he felt he could get some more game time.

Havertz has made a low key start to his Arsenal career and is yet to adapt to the midfield role he has been assigned by his new manager Mikel Arteta who identified him as the ideal replacement for Granit Xhaka.


WHAT HAS BEEN SAID – 

Asked by fellow talkSPORT presenter if Palmer was an upgrade on Havertz, Cundy replied: ‘Completely!

‘When you look at what Cole Palmer is bringing, he’s turning into the player we hoped Havertz would be.

‘He’s playing in a slightly different position, but he’s the player we hoped Havertz would turn into. At the moment he looks a class act.’

CHELSEA manager Mauricio Pochettino, meanwhile, was thrilled with Palmer’s contribution against Burnley and admitted his progress had represented a major surprise.

‘He is a very talented player and he has the quality and he surprised me when I arrived because,’ said Pochettino.

‘It was the day before the transfer window closed. the way the he reads the situations and what the team needs in every situation, he can be the player who can link with his team-mates.

‘He is still very very young but with great personality and he has the talent and the quality which we saw today.’
