Kai Havertz's summer move to Chelsea is inching closer after the midfielder reportedly completing his medical.

Havertz has been linked with a switch to Stamford Bridge all summer as Frank Lampard seeks to bolster his squad ahead of the new season.

Recently, Bayer Leverkusen boss appeared to confirm the midfielder's move to the Premier League is all but done after he announced the German will not return to the club.

The 21-year-old now seems to have taken yet another step closer to joining the Blues after he reportedly completed a medical with the west London outfit.

Mirror UK citing German publication Bild reports the transfer could officially be made public in the coming days.

The Leverkusen star is understood to have agreed personal terms with Chelsea on a five-year deal.

All formalities involving the transfer are said to have been finalised, setting the way clear for the Frank Lampard side to announce his signing.

His imminent move will see him link up with fellow countryman Timo Werner who joined the Stamford Bridge side this summer.

The Roman Abramovich-owned club have also landed the signatures of Hakim Ziyech, Ben Chilwell and Thiago Silva on a free transfer from Paris Saint-Germain.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Frank Lampard has been warned he risks being axed as Chelsea manager if the club fails to challenge for titles next season after the club's summer spending spree.

The Blues have thus far spent a staggering £131 million on four major signings including Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech and Ben Chilwell.

The addition of veteran defender Thiago Silva is also expected to bolster Chelsea's defence following the west London side's dreadful defensive record last summer.

Legit.ng also reported that Hakim Ziyech suffered an injury during Chelsea's 1-1 draw with Brighton, but Frank Lampard is optimistic the Moroccan will not stay on the sidelines for too long.

The £34 million signing from Ajax made his debut for the Blues in the pre-season friendly and was substituted early on in the match.

Lampard said in a post-match interview: "He's got a bit of a knock on his knee, a small twist which we will have to assess. Hopefully it's not too bad."
