Developments! Havertz to hand in transfer request to get Chelsea deal rolling
Kai Havertz is ready to accelerate a big-money move to Chelsea with the Germany international handing in a transfer request at Bayer Leverkusen.
Havertz has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League over the past few months with reports the Bayer Leverkusen midfielder is wanted by the likes of Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City and Manchester United.
It is believed that Chelsea want the lad as they seek a long-term replacement for Eden Hazard, as they have failed to replace the Belgian since e left the club last summer, and are reportedly ready to pay that massive £87 million asking fee to get a transfer deal done.
Now, reports on the TalkSport website have claimed that Havertz is ready to accelerate a big-money move to Chelsea with the Germany international handing in a transfer request at Leverkusen.
Leverkusen know that Havertz still has a couple of seasons to run on his current deal at the club and do not need to sell in this transfer window, especially if clubs do not meet the required asking price.
But with reports claiming that Havertz is set on a dream move to the Premier League, he is reportedly ready to get things rolling by handing in a transfer request when the transfer window opens up.
Will Havertz come to the Premier League in the summer? WIll he sign for Chelsea? Will Chelsea pay that massive £87 million asking price? Will he be the perfect replacement for Hazard?
There are so many questions heading into the summer window and fans are getting very frustrated about all the speculation about possible transfer deals, but Havertz is very young, he does not need to move and if Leverkusen want to keep him, keep playing him on a weekly basis, then stay.
He is developing very nicely at the club and will only need to leave if the German side get an offer that they simply cannot refuse, moving to a bigger club at an early stage has ended many great talents careers.
Havertz does not need to leave just yet, stay, baulk up, and then come to the premier League.
