Chelsea defender Toni Rudiger is happy to help the club with their transfer plans.

Rudiger talked up Chelsea to Timo Werner before his arrival from RB Leipzig and is now doing the same for Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Kai Havertz.

Rudiger, who’s played alongside Havertz for Germany, has praised his compatriot.

“Has he been linked with us?” Rudiger told Goal when asked about Havertz.

“He is a great talent and he had a very good season. He is also very young and we will see what happens.”

On Werner, Rudiger beamed: “There’s a bond, so I just did what I had to do. We spoke a lot during the lockdown and I have known him for a long time through playing in the national team and at Stuttgart together.

“It’s nice to see how his career has gone and how he developed every year, getting better and scoring more goals and getting more assists.

“I am very happy for him that he has now managed to take that step like me to leave Germany and come to the UK.

“I think it is a good sign if you can get people like him in the club because he is also still young but he showed that he can score goals and I hope that he can do the same here that he did in Germany.

“At the beginning, it was not easy for him because he was only 17 when he came into the squad and he was a little kid, very thin, but now, over time, I think he went to the gym because he is bigger!

“Each year you see how good his statistics are. Every year he scored more than the last and his qualities are in scoring goals.

“I hope he can do that for us but the most important thing is that he stays healthy and he adapts to many different things.

“I was one of the people who helped convince him to come here so it is also my job to help him [settle].

“Of course, we speak the same language but he does speak very good English too. The thing is, with this job, and as a team, we all have to help him. We will do that for him.”
