Bundesliga playmaker very keen on Chelsea move however next two games are important
Guaranteeing a Champions League spot will help convince Kai Havertz as Chelsea face two huge Premier League games having beaten Manchester United in Sunday’s FA Cup semi-final.
Kai Havertz is apparently “intrigued” in a move to Chelsea, but Frank Lampard’s side must qualify for Champions League football to sign the playmaker.
Chelsea will set their FA Cup desire aside for later after beating Manchester United 3-1 in Sunday’s semi-final.
Chelsea will be playing against Arsenal on August 1, the Blues face two huge Premier League games against Liverpool and Wolves as they offer to guarantee a top four spot.
Chelsea’s remaining two games will be sufficient to qualify for Champions League next season, as Leicester’s 3-0 defeat to Tottenham will make the Blues job easier.
However, there will be no space for smugness against either the Premier League champions on Wednesday or a Wolves team focusing on qualifying for European football themselves next Sunday.
And keeping in mind that Chelsea will require no additional inspiration to make sure about a Champions League place, it seems their accomplishment in that regard will be important in convincing top target Kai Havertz to make the following stride in his career.
Liverpool, Real Madrid and Manchester United have all been connected with the Germany playmaker, however Chelsea are still in pole position.
Kai Havertz has scored 17 goals and nine assists in all competitions for Leverkusen this season.
Bayer Leverkusen missed a spot in next season’s Champions League as they completed fifth in the Bundesliga, two points outside the top four.
