Chelsea to complete Bayer Leverkusen star move after sealing Champions League spot
The Blues are ready to complete dealings with Bayer Leverkusen over a deal for talented attacker Kai Havertz after qualifying for next season’s Champions League.
Chelsea, who beat Wolverhampton Wanderers 2-0 on Sunday to complete fourth in the Premier League, have just signed Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner ahead of the 2020-21 season.
Kai Havertz is generally viewed as Frank Lampard’s other attacking target, but Chelsea held off from postponing an offer while their Champions League fate was in a critical position.
Report from Germany claims that the West London outfit are presently in advanced talks with Bayer Leverkusen, in any case, and are confident of making a deal with the Bundesliga outfit.
The 21-year-old has had an immediate impact in 39 League goals in the last two seasons and is as far as anyone knows valued around £90m by Bayer Leverkusen.
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is also in the market for another goalkeeper, with Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak a potential target.
