Chelsea confirms Kai Havertz transfer 99% done deal

Chelsea may have been handed a boost in their hopes of securing a deal for Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Kai Havertz this summer.

The Blues have been locked in talks with the Bundesliga club for a number of weeks, with Leverkusen demanding a price of around £90 million for the 21-year-old.

Havertz himself is keen on a move to Stamford Bridge this summer, and there remains a confidence around the club that they will be able to get a deal over the line.

Latest reports from Fabrizio Romano claim that personal terms have been agreed between Chelsea and Havertz, but the two clubs still remain £18 million apart in their valuation.

While Leverkusen are remaining defiant on the price demands for the player, there may be signs that the club are preparing for life without the midfielder next season.

According to Sky Sports Italia journalist Angelo Mangiante , the German club are targeting Roma’s Patrik Schick as a replacement for Havertz.

The 24-year-old spent the season on loan at RB Leipzig from Roma, and impressed in the Bundesliga, scoring 10 goals.

It is said that the player will be available for a fee of €25 million (£22.5m), with Leverkusen strongly interested in the player as a potential replacement for Havertz.

Should the club be able to reach an agreement with Roma, then it may make them more open to selling Havertz to Chelsea this summer, especially should they make a healthy profit from the deal.
