One of the most active clubs in this transfer window, Chelsea is very close to getting it right with another reinforcement for the 2020/21 season. This is Kai Havertz, Bayer Leverkusen midfielder. As reported on Monday (31) the English newspaper ‘Guardian’, the London club agreed to pay the Germans an initial amount of £ 72 million. A five-year contract is already in place with the player.
On Monday (31), Leverkusen’s own coach, Peter Bosz, in a press conference, confirmed that Havertz will no longer train for the team. “There are clubs and people, like Roman Abramovich (Chelsea owner), who are able and want to pay that amount for him. They must have calculated well and Kai is not the only player to sign with Chelsea this summer,” revealed Bosz.
If the transfer is closed, Havertz will become the most expensive player in Chelsea’s history, narrowly overtaking goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga. Last season, the 21-year-old midfielder scored 18 goals and made nine assists in 45 total appearances with Bayer Leverkusen.
