Kai Havertz has reportedly left the Germany camp and now on his way to the UK to complete his highly anticipated £90million move to Premier League club Chelsea.
The 21-year-old Bayer Leverkusen forward is named in the Germany squad for the ongoing UEFA Nations League, but was an unused substitute during their 1-1 with Spain on Thursday night, September 3.
Despite Germany having another game against Switzerland on Sunday, Havertz has reportedly left training and headed for London to complete his long awaited move to Chelsea.
Although he is expected to undergo medicals before joining the Blues’ squad, Chelsea are already prepared to announce they youngster as their new signing.
Havertz is expected to earn a massive £310,000-a-week when he finally joins the Stamford Bridge side.
The London side has thus far spent a staggering £131million on four major signings including Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech and Ben Chilwell.
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 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.
West Ham midfielder Declan Rice is the other player who could complete a switch to Chelsea before the transfer window shuts.
The signings are expected to provide Lampard with a new-look Chelsea side that can rival Liverpool and Man City for the Premier League title.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Manchester United hero Gary Neville has backed the club to finish above Chelsea and champions Liverpool next season.
United sealed a third-place slot last season despite a slow start to the 2019/20 campaign to qualify for Champions League.
Despite the relatively impressive finish, the Red Devils had a massive 33 points separating them and eventual title-winners Liverpool.
However, Neville has tipped his former side to narrow the gap between them and their arch-rivals to finish in second place in the upcoming campaign right behind Man City.
