Avram Grant says Roman Abramovich will sanction a deal for Kai Havertz if he wants the attacking midfielder to sign for Chelsea.

Former Blues boss Grant believes that the lower transfer spend in recent seasons at Stamford Bridge has been due to the emergence of a promising crop of youngsters at the club.

Yet Grant says the money Abramovich has invested into the club should not be questioned and that the Blues owner is willing to spend big if need be.

"Abramovich didn't have a problem with money before! When he wants something, he buys it," Grant told Stats Perform News.

"He doesn't do things to save money. Whether they have more or less money, I don't think it's important.

"They spent so much money on it and they didn't give anyone a chance.
