Ancelotti is reportedly a big fan of his versatility to play on the wing.
In his column for The Daily Telegraph, he wrote:
“I watch every single Chelsea game, so I’ve followed the first seasons of the club’s two big German signings, Kai Havertz and Timo Werner, very closely and I am convinced next season we will start to really see the best of them.
Chelsea stars Timo Werner as well as Kai Havertz inspired Germany to a 7-1 rout of Latvia in their final friendly game before Euro 2020 kicks off, Chelsea FC reports.
Making his 39th international appearance, Werner grabbed his 16th goal on the night while Havertz was directly involved in three goals helping the Germans to a convincing victory.
