Michael Ballack believes Chelsea would be a good place for Kai Havertz to take the next step in his development.

The Leverkusen star has been touted for a move to Stamford Bridge, where Ballack used to play alongside Frank Lampard, who is now the club's manager.

And speaking in an interview with Sport Bild, Ballack says he feels Havertz would be in good hands under the former England international.

"I firmly believe that Frank Lampard would be 100 percent behind Kai Havertz. He likes players, who are very dangerous in front of goal, and there aren't many of those," said Ballack and added:

"Havertz is a player that Frank Lampard would help further, not least because he himself was a midfielder with an eye for goal, who was always moving into dangerous areas, looking to finish off a chance."
