Chelsea are set to report Kai Havertz as their 6th summer signing today.
Chelsea will purportedly announce Kai Havertz’s move from Bayer Leverkusen today following weeks of negotiations.
The talented midfielder was as unused substitute for Germany in their 1-1 Nations League draw with Spain the previous evening.
Chelsea will break their club record transfer fee after consenting to meet Bayer Leverkusen’s £90m asking price and they will pay £72m upfront with the rest in add-ons.
Havertz will be having his medical today and a announcement follows in 24 hours.
When the deal goes through Chelsea’s absolute spend this summer will be over £200m mark.
Chelsea spent over £80m signing attacking pair Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner from Ajax and RB Leipzig, respectively.
Ben Chilwell moved from Leicester for £50m while fellow centre-backs Thiago Silva and Malang Sarr were gobbled up on free transfers.
Bayer Leverkusen head coach Peter Bosz doesn’t expected Kai Havertz to come back to his club after the international break.
