Kai Havertz is set to fly-in to London to undergo his medical after Chelsea agreed a £90m deal to sign the attacker from Bayer Leverkusen this summer, according to the Daily Mail.
The Blues have been locked in negotiations with Leverkusen in recent weeks after Frank Lampard identified Havertz as one of his key summer transfer targets as he looks to build a squad capable of competing for major honours next season
Havertz has received interest from some of the biggest clubs in Europe but is set to move to Stamford Bridge, with Chelsea close to concluding a deal with Leverkusen that could be worth up to £90m.

Several media reports suggested earlier this week that Chelsea had finally struck an agreement with the Bundesliga outfit with the Daily Mail claiming they would pay an initial £72m with the fee rising to £90m if add-ons are met.
The two clubs are now putting the finishing touches on the paperwork and the newspaper report says Havertz is set to fly to London over the coming days to sign a five-year contract worth around £130,000-a-week with the deal increasing if he meets certain bonus targets.
The Telegraph also reports that the 21-year-old attacking midfielder will travel to the UK to undertake his medical later this week so it looks like Chelsea are closing in on what would be a major coup.
Havertz has developed into one of the most exciting talents in world football over the past few years and despite his tender age, he’s already racked up 45 goals and 31 assists in 148 appearances for Leverkusen.
