Chelsea finally land Kai Havertz for €100m deal

Chelsea are finally set to sign Kai Havertz after agreeing to Bayer Leverkusen’s £90million transfer fee, according to reports.

The Blues have been chasing the German hotshot, 21, all summer.

And after Roman Abramovich gave the green light to a £150m splurge, Chelsea have convinced Bayer Leverkusen to sell.

According to reports in Germany, the deal worth £90m plus add-ons – easily the club’s record buy, beating Kepa Arrizabalaga’s £71.6m move from Athletic Bilbao.

Havertz will sign a five-year deal at Stamford Bridge, according to Bild expert Christian Falk.


Chelsea have already spent £48m on striker Timo Werner from RB Leipzig, plus £36m on Ajax playmaker Hakim Ziyech.

But Frank Lampard is itching to continue his squad overhaul this summer and will have been buoyed by his £150m cash injection.

The Blues are thought to be on the brink of completing a £50m move for Leicester and England left-back Ben Chilwell.

And Lampard also wants West Ham star Declan Rice – suggesting he would form half of a new centre-back pairing, rather than playing in his preferred defensive midfield spot.
