Finally Chelsea Are In Final Stages To Sign Kai Havertz From Bayer Leverkusen

Sky Sports reporting Chelsea still agreeing how to structure the payments for Kai Havertz deal, which is true. The up front fee isn’t the issue, total amount with add-ons the final stages now. No dramas. They also say ‘look out for developments this week’ on the Chilwell deal.

The 21-year-old attacking midfielder is believed to be keen on the move to Stamford Bridge.

Havertz told Leverkusen he wants to move on in his career.

Leverkusen CEO Fernando Carro said: “Kai has voiced his desire to make the next step.”

But he has an agreement with the Bundesliga side that he will only be allowed to move if their valuation is met and an acceptable offer arrives.


The Blues have already splashed the cash on another German in Timo Werner as well as playmaker Hakim Ziyech.

And it appears Frank Lampard – who dashed back from France to avoid quarantine – will not be able to snare a cut-price bargain as Leverkusen stand firm.

The report states the club are unwilling to accept any offers lower than £90m – despite the financial implications of the coronavirus pandemic.

Havertz is one of the most exciting European prospects, justifying the hype with 12 goals and six assists in 30 Bundesliga appearances last season.

The Germany international has two years left on his deal and his price will almost certainly drop if Leverkusen do not cash in this summer.

But the club are adamant Havertz is NOT overpriced.

Ashley Cole has backed Chelsea to seal the transfer of Kai Havertz this summer to make them “even more potent” next season.

The Blues have been busy in the market so far this summer, already securing deals to sign attackers Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner.


Chelsea are in the ‘final stages’ of negotiations over a deal for Kai Havertz. Discussions are focusing on the structure of performance related payments. It seems like this is a deal edging towards to a conclusion #CFC
