Chelsea are set to complete the signing of Kai Havertz from Bayer Leverkusen “pretty soon”, according to Sky Sports News reporter Kaveh Solhekol.
Weare determined to make the Germany international their third signing of the summer transfer window after completing deals to bring in Hakim Ziyech from Ajax and Timo Werner to add some more goals to the attack.
There has been alot of rumours that Havertz has already agreed a move to Stamford Bridge, has even agreed personal terms on a £140,000-a-week contract, but that has not been made official by the clubs just yet.
But Solhekol has now come out and claimed that we are set to complete a deal for Havertz very soon, and the finer details are just being worked out by the two clubs before an official announcement can be made.
“Well, I think this deal is definitely looking like it’s going to happen pretty soon,” Solhekol told the Premier League Review.
“The state of play is that Chelsea want to sign him, he wants to move to Chelsea, Bayer Leverkusen will sell him this summer simply because he’s got two years left on his contract and he’s not going to be signing a new deal so this is the time they’re going to get the biggest transfer fee for him.
“Bayer Leverkusen want €100m which is about £90m. I don’t think Chelsea are going to stretch as far as that, we think they’re going to do a deal probably for something like £70m but everything is pointing to the fact this deal is going to be done pretty soon.”
