Frank Lampard have nothing but sweet words for his newest signing, Kai Havertz who joined the London team in a club record deal from Bayern Leverkusen.
Havertz joined Chelsea from Bayer Leverkusen for £90million last week and much is expected from him in his first season in the Premier League.
Lampard is excited about the qualities that Havertz can bring to Chelsea but is wary not to expect too much from the 21-year-old straight away.
The former England international told Chelsea’s official website: ‘Kai is a really exciting signing for myself and for the club first and foremost.
‘We also have to understand that he is a fantastic young talent but we must give him time to let him settle and let those talents come through.’
Lampard has also been impressed with Havertz’s attitude since his arrival at the club’s Cobham training ground.
Lampard said: ‘On his personality, I have been absolutely overwhelmed with how humble and down to earth he is, and how well he wants to do here, and how he is very excited with the challenge. He wants to come here and be a top player for Chelsea, and really prove his talents on this stage.’
Frank Lampard will be eager to compete with the likes of Liverpool and Man City in his second season in charge.
Chelsea have already signed Hakim Ziyech, Thiago Silva, Timo Werner and Malang Sarr in a busy transfer window and are still rumoured to be eyeing some top players.
