Former Chelsea star, Florent Malouda has exposed the club’s major problem after the Blues sold forward Kai Havertz to Arsenal.
Arsenal announced the signing of Havertz from Chelsea on Wednesday.
However, Malouda believes Chelsea have a problem developing’ young talent after selling Havertz to their Premier League rival Arsenal.
He fears Havertz’s exit from Chelsea could come back to bite Mauricio Pochettino’s side in the future, citing examples of the likes of Kevin De Bruyne and Mohamed Salah.
“Havertz isn’t in his prime yet. He won the Champions League and is a big player in the German national team, so you can’t question his quality, but there has been a frustration with his performances at Chelsea,” Malouda told Genting Casino.
“Whenever a player leaves, you always wish them well, but his departure underlines why Chelsea need to fix the problems they have when it comes to developing players.
“We have seen some brilliant players that were there go to other clubs and shine, the prime examples being Kevin De Bruyne and Mo Salah.
“De Bruyne has just won the treble. I wish he was at Chelsea to win the treble, but if you asked him if he wanted to go back, he would say no.
“That’s an issue that needs to be addressed.” he said.
