Chelsea making final push to complete Havertz deal as Blues prepare official offer


Kai Havertz Bayer Leverkusen Chelsea 2019-20

Chelsea are pushing to complete the signing of 21-year-old Kai Havertz from Bayer Leverkusen and will next look to agree a fee after establishing that the German wants to move to Stamford Bridge.

The Blues were waiting to see the outcome of their league campaign before doing further business after completing the double signing of Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech for a combined fee of £91 million (€100m/$114m).

However, the Bundesliga club have still yet to receive any official offers after putting an asking price on Havertz at around €100 million (£90m/$111m). It is felt that a lower fee will ultimately be negotiated at around €76m (£70m/$87m).

Blues confidence centres around their financial might in the upcoming transfer window, having recently had a transfer ban while sellingEden Hazard for £88m (€96m/$113m)to Real Madrid and Alvaro Morata to Atletico Madrid for £58m (€65m/$75m).

Real Madrid and Bayern Munich were both interested in Havertz, who is pushing for a move following Leverkusen's failure to qualify for the Champions League, but both clubs may not have the funds to complete a deal.

Bayern are unable to make any other major transfers due to the financial impact of coronavirus alongside their lucrativesigning of Manchester City's Leroy Sane. Similarly, Real Madrid have ruled out major dealthis summer due to the economic realities of the pandemic.

Havertz is back training with Leverkusen ahead of their Europa League campaign but the talks may lead to him missing the upcoming game with Rangers, much like how Timo Werner opted out of RB Leipzig's Champions League run.

Further Chelsea transfer targets include Leicester City's Ben Chilwell at left-back as well asWest Ham's Declan Rice, although neither of their clubs wants to sell this summer.

Chelsea are still considering strengthening their defence as they weigh up future contract discussions with both Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rudiger, who both have less than two-years left on their deals.

Meanwhile, the Bluesare actively looking to sell Emerson Palmieri who is the subject ofstrong interest from Internazionale.

The west Londoners have also been scouting and considering their options regarding a goalkeeper since January, and Kepa Arrizabalaga was dropped from his No 1 goalkeeping spot for the second time this season against Wolves on Sunday with 38-year-old Willy Caballero was promoted in his place.

However they have to find an escape route for their £71m (€78m/$91.5m)record signing before considering their options. Valencia have shown an interest in a loan move but it remains to be seen whether they can even afford his £170,000-a-week wages, never mind any other fees.

Chelsea are aware of Atletico Madrid's Jan Oblak and his €120 million (£110m/$137.5m) release clause, while Ajax's Andre Onana has been offered to Frank Lampard's side.
