And now it seems the Stamford Bridge outfit are close to sealing a move for German star Havertz.
Respected journalist Kevin Palmer tweeted: “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.”
A fee has reportedly been a sticking point between Leverkusen and Chelsea with the Blues hoping to seal a deal for around £70m.
The Bundesliga side are believed to want closer to £90m for the 21-year-old ace.
“He’s a really good player,” Hargreaves said on BT Sport. “He’s a great young player, but they have a lot of those great young players.
“I think they need some leaders in there. Havertz for £90million – you want ready-made, walks in and makes you a better team, and I think the worry is they spend right now £200m on Werner, Ziyech and Havertz and they can still finish fourth or fifth.
“They want to win a title and I think Havertz is a special player, but it feels like they need to sort out the ‘keeper and the centre-backs first.
“Mason Mount could play in there. Where does Mason then play? He’s had a good season.”
Lampard is also believed to be interested in signing a new goalkeeper, so it could be a busy summer in west London.
