Kai Havertz’ move to Chelsea football club of England is pulling through with latest reports saying the Blues are closing in on a deal which will make the player the most expensive German footballer ever.
It was gathered that the Premier League club are set to complete a staggering £180million deal for the 21-year-old star.
Chelsea have been doing everything possible to sign the player all through the summer with reports that top transfer chief Marina Granovskaia is working hard to get it over the line.
According to German outlet BILD, it will cost Chelsea at least a whopping €200million (£180m) to finally land the Bayer Leverkusen star to the Stamford Bridge.
That includes his contract, believed to be worth a total of €100m (£90m) over the course of five years, as well as the €100m (£90m) transfer fee that Leverkusen are holding out for.
But Granovskaia is hoping to get a deal done for a total fee of €80m (£71.5m) with €20m (£18m) in add-ons included.
This latest development will come as a cheering one for Chelsea fans who are currently waiting to see the players Frank Lampard would sign this summer.
Chelsea failed to win any title at the 2019/20 Premier League season in which they also lost the FA Cup final against Arsenal.
The Gunners' victory over the Blues at Wembley has given them the ticket to play in the Europa League next season, while Chelsea will play in the Champions League.
Having signed Ziyech and Timo Werner, Frank Lampard is still targeting bringing Kai Havertz to Stamford Bridge.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Matteo Guendouzi is reportedly set for an Arsenal exit this summer with Villarreal his next possible destination.
The Frenchman was relegated to the bench since the arrival of Mikel Arteta from Manchester City late last year.
He has now been linked with a move to join Spanish League outfit Sevilla and reunite with former boss Unai Emery ahead of the coming season.
SunSport quoting Football Insider reported that the Yellow Submarines are offering a £30 million loan-to-buy for the 21-year-old.
