Chelsea set to finally land Kai Havertz after stumping up Bayer Leverkusen's £90m transfer fee

CHELSEA are finally set to sign Kai Havertz after agreeing to Bayer Leverkusen's £90million transfer fee, according to reports.

The Blues have been chasing the German hotshot, 21, all summer.

And after Roman Abramovich gave the green light to a £150m splurge, Chelsea have convinced Bayer Leverkusen to sell.

According to reports in Germany, the deal worth £90m plus add-ons.

Havertz will sign a five-year deal at Stamford Bridge, according to Bild expert Christian Falk.

Falk tweeted: "Leverkusen will soon accept Chelsea's offer for @kaihavertz29.

"The transfer is perfect.

"5 years contract for Havertz. Total Transfer fee 100 Mio Euro including adds on."

Chelsea have already spent £48m on striker Timo Werner from RB Leipzig, plus £36m on Ajax playmaker Hakim Ziyech.

But Frank Lampard is itching to continue his squad overhaul this summer and will have been buoyed by his £150m cash injection.

The Blues are thought to be on the brink of completing a £50m move for Leicester and England left-back Ben Chilwell.

And Lampard also wants West Ham star Declan Rice – suggesting he would form half of a new centre-back pairing, rather than playing in his preferred defensive midfield spot.

Chelsea hope to secure a deal for around £45m for Rice, rather than stumping up for his £90m valuation.

In order to raise the extra money needed to sign Rice, the Blues are likely to hold a firesale.

The likes of Marcos Alonso, Jorginho, Kepa Arrizabalaga and Emerson Palmieri are all expected to be axed this summer.
