Bayer Leverkusen boss explains why Chelsea not getting Havertz’s best – Ziyech is an issue, Last season, Kai Havertz played 45 matches for Bayer Leverkusen, scoring 18 goals and adding nine assists.

It was very similar to his figures from the previous campaign, and encouraged interest in the German international.

In 22 matches for Chelsea so far, Havertz has scored five goals and added six assists.

There’s been plenty of talk about reasons for that, and a settling in process could be among the main genuine issues.
