Dimitar Berbatov believes Bayer Leverkusen ace Kai Havertz will be an ‘amazing’ signing for Chelsea but thinks they need to address the goalkeeping situation urgently.
Berbatov, the former Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur striker, has been impressed by the Blues’ business in the summer transfer window, with Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech already coming through the door.
However, he believes Frank Lampard needs to sign a goalkeeper, with Kepa Arrizabalaga slipping down the pecking order.
And he thinks Jan Oblak would be the ideal signing.
‘They for sure need a goalkeeper and Jan Oblak would be a great option,’ Berbatov told Betfair.
‘Timo Werner was a good deal, and Willian looks like he might stay if they win the FA Cup.
‘There are still rumours about Kai Havertz who would be an amazing player for them.’
Kepa’s future appears in doubt after he was dropped again by Frank Lampard for the crunch Premier League final day clash against Wolves.
But despite the seemingly urgent need to land a new goalkeeper, Lampard has so far prioritised attacking recruits.
It remains to be seen whether Lampard opts to start Kepa or Willy Caballero in Saturday’s FA Cup final against Arsenal.
