Former Tottenham and Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov has urged Chelsea to sign Bayer Leverkusen star Kai Havertz as a replacement for Eden Hazard who joined Real Madrid last summer.

The Germany international has been linked with a move to Chelsea and Berbatov says he sees Havertz as a capable replacement for Eden Hazard.

“I think it is interesting to see Chelsea linked with him, they haven’t really replaced Hazard since he left and it was always going to be difficult to do so,” Berbatov told Betfair, cited by Daily Mail.

“I think for sure they need to go for a young player with a lot of football ahead of them, if that is the case then they will also have to be patient as well because sometimes young players need time to adjust to the physicality and speed of Premier League. 

“Havertz is an option for them but it has only been the first week back of the Bundesliga and I hope that he continues to the way he has comeback, by scoring and producing the goals that he has done so far.”

Havertz scored a brace last weekend in Leverkusen's 4-1 win over Werder Bremen in the Bundesliga.
