Bayern Leverkusen CEO Fernando Carro admitted last week that Kai Havertz has expressed his desire to leave the club this summer.
Multiple reports coming out of Germany have been covering Chelsea interest in the 21-year-old.
According to Bild, those in charge at Leverkusen expect the west London club to promptly ‘submit a written offer’ for the attacking midfielder.
The outlet has carried an analysis, explaining why the Blues must ‘buy’ the Germany international as soon as possible.
It’s claimed Frank Lampard’s side will have a ‘unique chance’ to sign the player only in this transfer window.
As of now, Chelsea are in ‘pole position’ because the likes of Real Madrid or Bayern Munich can’t invest €100m on a new signing. The latter two would be back for Havertz, if he’s at Bayer until next summer.
Bayer Leverkusen return for preseason training on August 28th and the report states the two clubs ‘will try to reach an agreement’ for Havertz before they start their preparation for the new campaign.
