According to RMC Sport, “discussions are continuing” between the two sides with Chelsea “optimisitic” of getting the deal done.
Havertz will join a forward line including new signings Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner, sure to excite the Stamford Bridge faithful.

Kai Havertz is said to be pushing for a move to the Premier League more than Jadon Sancho.
The Bundesliga stars are both linked with a move to the English top flight.
Havertz, 21, valued at £90million is subject to heavy interest from Chelsea while United are at loggerheads with Borussia Dortmund, who price Sancho, 20, at £108m.
According to Sky Sports, of the pair it is Havertz who “is the one who is most keen to move as soon as possible”.
