(Video): Petr Cech’s response when asked if Chelsea are signing Kai Havertz

Chelsea have a top new director of football in the form of Petr Cech, and he’s already a couple of coups by signing Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech.

The rumours now all circle around Kai Havertz, and when a fan spotted Cech walking through London they couldn’t resist asking him about the potential move.

His response was just to laugh and say “nice try”, but it’s hardly a denial, and you can see why fans are getting excited by it.

If it does happen, it will have to be in the next few weeks, given how little time there is before next season starts – so we might not have to wait long to find out exactly what that little laugh means.
