Earning your first transfer at 21, adapting to a more demanding league and having to deal with your huge price tag is never an easy challenge for any player out there.
Signed from Bayer Leverkusen this summer, Kai Havertz has flattered to deceive so far for Frank Lampard’s side.
You may want to argue that contracting coronavirus which kept the German star out for a few games played a key role in hampering his growth but let’s not forget Kai Havertz has now started at least each of Chelsea’s last 4 games.
Against Wolves, Havertz was largely ineffective on the pitch as the Blues slumped to another defeat in the Premier League.
