Chelsea fans have been teased that Kai Havertz could be on his way to Stamford Bridge in a matter of weeks, after his sister appeared to confirm the transfer on social media. The attacking midfielder is high on Frank Lampard’s shopping list and the Blues have already held talks with the player.
As was the case with Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech, Lampard is set to play a key role in convincing Havertz that Chelsea is the right move for him.
The player has already told Bayer Leverkusen that he wants to leave the club this summer.
Leverkusen have slapped a £90million asking price on his head but Chelsea value him way closer to £70m.They’re expected to enter negotiations much nearer £50m as they look to chance their arm and safe a fortune for further spending elsewhere.

The Blues still have Sunday’s final day Premier League clash with Wolves to worry about for the meantime.
A point would be enough to secure Champions League football for next season, something that would act as a bargaining chip in talks with Havertz.
Then there will be the small matter of the FA Cup final against Arsenal before next month’s Champions League last 16 second-leg with Bayern Munich.
By the time that comes around, there is every chance Havertz could be a Chelsea player if his sister is anything to go by.
In what appears to be a leaked conversation via Instagram which has been obtained by the Football Terrace Podcast, screenshots have emerged appearing to confirm Havertz is moving to London next month.
It starts with somebody wishing Havertz’s sister Lea a happy birthday, before cheekily asking: “My colleague asked me about your young sibling. Does he change clubs?”
To which Lea Havertz replies: “He’s moving to London next month.”
To which the mystery messenger responded: “Fantastic, Chelsea?”
“Yes!” Leah says.
It's absolutely unreal how calm, cool and composed Kai Haverts is in front of the goal. And to think he's not even halfway to his prime yet. He'll be one Chelsea's most crucial players in years to come! pic.twitter.com/1H5KKRwXcy
