Chelsea are confident of landing Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Kai Havertz as their third major signing.
The Blues beat Wolves 2-0 on the final day of the Premier League season to seal their place in next season’s Champions League, and boss Frank Lampard has already eyed moves to improve his squad ahead of the new campaign.
Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech have already confirmed their moves to Stamford Bridge, but Havertz looks to be the next big name to make the switch to west London.
With that in mind, here is a round-up of all the very latest news on the Blues’ pursuit of the midfielder and everything we know so far about the plan to bring him to Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea may have already secured the signing of Ajax sensation Ziyech for next season but you can never have too much quality, right?
If the Blues were to win the race for the midfielder, who would have had ambitions to represent Germany at this summer’s European Championships had they not been suspended because of the coronavirus pandemic, he would add an extra wealth of quality to Lampard’s options.
He told talkSPORT: “If you see his movement, he’s very elegant, he’s always calm, he has great passing ability. What a lot of people don’t see, because we watch him every day, is that he’s pretty fast. That’s a big bonus.
“He’s a great player; he’s scoring goals, he’s great in the air and he’s pretty fast.
“It’s up to him how far he can go.”
