Belgium forward Eden Hazard was one of Chelsea's best players before he left the club for Real Madrid two years ago. The 39-year-old played at Stamford Bridge for 7 years scoring 85 goals for the Blues in the Premier League and was their best player for the last few years.
Hazard left a great legacy behind at the Bridge helping the team win the Premier League, Europa League, FA Cup and League cup. The club is yet to have a perfect replacement for the Real Madrid winger. The club has made some incredible signings since the departure of the Belgium captain which seems to be bearing fruits.
The champions of Europe brought are Christian Pulisic, Kai Havertz, Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner as the replacement for Belgium. However, among these players, the star who could become a new Eden Hazard and make more achievements than him is Germany's youngster Kai Havertz.
The 21-year-old forward has been terrific for the Blues especially after Thomas Tuchel arrived and he has been one of his best players. He won the German boss his first trophy at Stamford Bridge last season.
He scored a hat-trick for Chelsea last season proving how decisive he is. He was named the German golden when he was playing in the Bundesliga at Bayer Leverkusen.
Kai Havertz is also the most expensive German player which is a clear indication of how talented he is and if he helped Chelsea win the Champions League in his first campaign then there is much to come for him in the future. He is very versatile which offers Tuchel a lot of options and he could win more trophies and personal awards than Hazard.
