Chelsea redouble their pursuit for Bayer Leverkusen playmaker
Chelsea have supposedly increased their determination to wrap up a deal for sought after attacker Kai Havertz following the completion of Bayer Leverkusen’s season.
The Germany playmaker scored a late penalty in Bayer Leverkusen’s 4-2 loss to Bayern Munich in Saturday’s DFB-Pokal last at the Olympiastadion.
Kai Havertz is said to have been distinguished by Frank Lampard as the missing piece to the riddle, with Chelsea already signed Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech ahead of next season.
As indicated by Ivisionsport, the Blues would prefer not to waste time to sign the talented youngster since his season is formally finished.
Chelsea are accepted to be happy to pay £70m for Kai Havertz, who finished 2019-20 with 25 goals and assists in all competitions.
In the mean time, a similar report shows that West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice could be next on Chelsea’s list once they complete the signing of Kai Havertz from Bayer Leverkusen.
Chelsea have made Kai Havertz a prime target ahead of next season as Frank Lampard is willing to challenge for Premier League title next season after disappointing campaign.
