Chelsea will make two more signings after completing their seventh transfer of the season Kai Havertz from Bayer Leverkusen.

The Blues have crossed the £250million mark in terms of spending this summer and are looking to land more players before the window closes.

According to the Telegraph, a new goalkeeper and a central defender are what Frank Lampard is looking at before the end of his club's spending spree.

German midfielder Havertz had to leave his country's training camp to complete a medical before he was officially unveiled.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Chelsea have completed the signing of German midfielder Kai Havertz on a five-year deal.

The 21-year-old moved to Old Trafford from Bayer Leverkusen in a deal valued around €80 million this summer.

He becomes Frank Lampard's sixth signing after the likes of Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech, Thiago Silva, and two others.

Legit.ng also reported that Atletico Madrid forward Diego Costa has joined the list of football stars to test positive for the deadly coronavirus.

The 31-year-old was said to have been tested for the infection while on summer holiday will be in isolation for the next two weeks. Costa spent his summer holiday and that was probably where he contracted the virus.

His colleague Santiago Arias also tested positive for COVID-19 and they might not be fit for Atletico's curtain raiser against Granada on September 27.

Legit.ng reported that Man United legend 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.
