Journalist Simon Phillps has claimed that Chelsea would listen to a ‘good offer’ for Kai Havertz and insists it’s a ‘make-or-break season’ for the German.

Havertz has been a regular feature in the Blues line-up once again this term starting all but one of their fixtures. 

One of Thomas Tuchel’s most used players, the 23-year-old was given the nod by Graham Potter in his first game in charge but his position may be under threat, with Armando Broja catching the English coach’s eye.  

The one-time Bayer Leverkusen dynamo was far from his best last season with only Christian Pulisic, Timo Werner and Saul Niguez averaging a lower SofaScore match rating than his 6.83.

His only goal so far this season came against West Ham, ironically his only substitute appearance, and Phillips has previously stated that he feels the 6 ft 3 maestro ins on borrowed time. 

Now the journalist has claimed that the west Londoners would consider selling the £150k-per-week Germany international should his form not improve.

He told GIVEMESPORT: “I think this is a make-or-break season for Kai Havertz. If he doesn’t continue to grow and get better, then I think Chelsea would definitely listen to a good offer if it did come in from Bayern Munich or elsewhere. It really is on Kai Havertz.”

Rediscovering his form

Havertz was signed for £71m just two years ago off the back of a breakout season that saw him register 18 goals and nine assists in 45 appearances across all competitions. 

In his first season at Stamford Bridge in a similar amount of games, he produced 17 direct goal involvements, albeit around 1200 minutes less game time.

The 28-cap Germany international scored the winner as Chelsea clinched their second Champions League trophy in his first campaign and went on to score 14 goals and provide six assists last season.

However, he has failed to capture the imagination for large spells during his time at Cobham with Tuchel previously saying “we want absolutely more” from him.

If he can’t up his game Havertz could indeed be ousted, with Bayern Munich thought to be interested, but at 23 he certainly does have time on his side.
