Chelsea ‘are pressing ahead’ with plans to sign this £89 million rated Midfielder
Chelsea are reportedly pressing ahead with plans to sign Kai Havertz after Bayer Leverkusen’s season ended.
Despite already having a very exciting attack that will only be improved with the likes of Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner arrive in the summer, it is understood that Frank Lampard wants to keep adding to his attack.
Havertz has been brilliant for Leverkusen over the past few seasons and has turned into a real source of goals for the German outfit, netting 37 goals in the last two seasons, as his stock in the game continues to rise.
Recent reports have claimed The 21-year-old Germany international has been identified by Blues boss Frank Lampard as the man to come in and possibly be the long-term replacement for Willian, who is seemingly leaving Chelsea at the end of the season.
And according to reports on the Guardian, Chelsea are not set to press ahead for a deal to sign Havertz, who was part of the Leverkusen side that lost the German Cup final to Bayern Munich on Saturday, in what could prove to be his final appearance for the club.
And the reports add Leverkusen’s failure to qualify for next season’s Champions League means Havertz is now expected to leave this summer, and it’s claimed he would be open to a move to Stamford Bridge.
Leverkusen team-mate Wendell recently revealed Kai Havertz dreams of playing in the Premier League.
Wendell said: “Psychologically, the Germans are very focused people.
“They are very concentrated on what they want. If he goes to the Premier League, he will learn a lot.
“I think Kai dreams of playing there. He has that desire, and I think he decides to play in England he will be a success.
“He’s a complete player. If you play him as a No9 or No10 a little bit behind, or if you put him out wide, he’ll know what to do.
“He has a facility to understand what the manager wants. He finishes well with both feet. He’s strong with his head, he has good technique.”
Look, Havertz would be a brilliant signing for Chelsea, so it will be interesting to see if they do push on and try to get the young German signed up like many reports suggest.
