There have been several rumours surrounding Kai Havertz’s transfer to Chelsea and Havertz’s current boss, Peter Bosz has indicated that the winger might not be available for their Europa league clash in August suggesting that the winger is to be sold this summer. Chelsea have already signed Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech as they look to close the gap to Manchester City and champions Liverpool. Signing Havertz will be another massive step in that direction.
Based on the two completed signings of Werner and Ziyech, we predicted that Lampard might go with the 4-3-3 formation for next season but if they manage to sign Havertz, the 4-2-3-1 formation might be better suited for Chelsea. Havertz can either play on the right wing or as an attacking midfielder but with Ziyech already lined up on the right, attacking midfielder might be the best option for Havertz initially.
Chelsea’s expected formation with Werner, Ziyech & Havertz
With most of Chelsea’s attacking players being versatile, Lampard can change the formation around during the games. Werner can play on the left and Havertz, Ziyech and Pulisic can swap their positions to create a dynamic attacking force. If Chelsea do manage to sign Havertz, Lampard will have a stunning collection of attacking talent at his disposal along with some good backups. If he settles upon a good system early on in the next season, they might be able to compete for the Premier League title against the likes of City and Liverpool.
