Bayer Leverkusen star Kai Havertz is ‘on his way to Chelsea’, according to Bild.
The 21-year-old was an unused substitute in Germany’s 1-1 draw against Spain in the UEFA Nations League tie on Thursday.
It’s claimed the attacking midfielder left the national team camp in Stuttgart on Friday morning, to complete his move to Stamford Bridge.
Bild have labelled it as a ‘surprising departure’ from the ‘Wald-Hotel’ in Stuttgart.
For weeks, reports from the German press have stressed the Bundesliga club have been demanding €100m to sanction Havertz’s sale this summer. However, the Blues were unwilling to meet Leverkusen’s asking price and been trying to bring down the final fee of the deal.
Bild’s latest report states the differences between the two clubs over their valuations have been sorted out as Leverkusen have ‘finally come to an agreement’ with Frank Lampard’s side. However, they don’t mention the details of the transfer fee.
Chelsea have already signed Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner, Ben Chillwell and Thiago Silva, and Havertz is now set to become the latest addition to the west London club.
