Kurt Zouma hails Timo Werner and Kai Havertz


Chelsea centre-back Kurt Zouma has hailed new signings Timo Werner and Kai Havertz and backs them to contribute to the team’s future success.

Timo Werner joined Chelsea from RB Leipzig for £47.5m while Kai Havertz joined from Leverkusen in a £70m deal.

Zouma believes their qualities will improve the team.

“He’s a top scorer. He’s been scoring goals for fun in the German league,” Zouma told reporters, as picked up by Tribal Football.

“That’s why he has come here, to show himself in the Premier League. I think he can do it. He has the ability and he’s so quick.

“The players that came here are going to bring something new to the team. Kai started great, defensively he helped us a lot. They obviously need to get used to the shape. As soon as everyone is fully fit they will bring a lot of things to the team.

“It’s very exciting. But on the pitch will tell us what we can do. We need to work hard in training. But we have a great team. We don’t need to get too excited. We just need to be ready and keep the confidence high.”

Both Werner and Havertz are likely to start for Chelsea when they host Liverpool at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
