Kai Havertz’s versatility compelled Lampard to make him the most expensive German and bring him to Stamford Bridge. But how does the marquee signing compare to Premier League’s top playmakers.
Arsenal are in advanced talks to sign Chelsea’s winger Willian on a free. The 31-year-old Brazil international was offered a two-year extension on his current deal, set to run out on August 31st; but the two-time Premier League winner with Chelsea has declined such an offer, holding out instead for a three-year deal.
Several shrewd free signings have taken place in recent years. The likes of Diego Godin, Aaron Ramsay, Ander Herrera, Franck Ribery, Hector Herrera, Gary Cahil and Adrien Rabiot would be some of the prominent examples. This season too, a few stellar names are up for grabs, and all for nothing!
