Three alternatives to Kai Havertz as Chelsea hit transfer stumbling block, according to the Daily Star.

After signing Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech earlier this summer, Chelsea fans were growing even more excited about the possibility of signing Bayer Leverkusen star Havertz.

However, the Daily Star are reporting that Chelsea have been knocked back in their attempt to sign the attacking midfielder with the Bundesliga outfit digging their heels on a jaw-dropping £90million transfer fee.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is unlikely to be able to stump up that fee so the national newspaper as looked at possible alternative attacking midfielders Chelsea could sign this summer.

Now at 26-years-old, Draxler is moving into what should be his prime as a footballer. But unfortunately for the Germany international he is not playing regular football at Paris Saint-Germain.

The attacking midfielder could be a shrewd alternative to Havertz with many years of top football still ahead of him and much more experience than his German counterpart.
