Chelsea are reportedly close to reaching an agreement with Bayer Leverkusen for the transfer of Kai Havertz.

Havertz is set to join Chelsea in a €100m deal and will earn €20m a season for the next five years.

According to Sport Bild’s Christian Falk, negotiations started in the middle of last week and Havertz will become Germany’s most expensive player.


Falk did not give more details as Sport Bild is set to release an article later today. However, another journalist revealed the details of the article in a tweet.

The transfer saga seems to be coming to an end but Chelsea won’t end there as manager Frank Lampard is still looking to sign a left-back, a goalkeeper and possibly a centre-back before the start of the season next month.
