Havertz linked with Chelsea
Havertz, who just under two years left on his current contract with Leverkusen, has been linked with a move to Chelsea for some time now.
And, according to a report from Telegraph last week, the Londoners took a big step forward in their pursuit of the German.
It was claimed that personal terms had been agreed on a five-year deal for Havertz to join Chelsea.
Havertz scored 12 and assisted six in 30 Bundesliga outings this past season.
However, there still looked to be the issue of an actual transfer sum being agreed between Chelsea and Leverkusen
The above-linked report stated that Leverkusen want a fee in excess of €90m for their star man.
However, Chelsea, at that time, were only believed to have tabled an offer of around €20m less than that.
Chelsea & Leverkusen reportedly agree Havertz fee
In the days since, though, the Londoners look to have stepped up their offer for the German international.
As we covered on Sunday, Fabrizio Romano reported over the weekend that Chelsea had submitted an offer with an update expected in the next few days.
Now, on Monday, a fresh update concerning Havertz has been forthcoming and it seems like great news for the Blues.
As first reported on Romano’s official Twitter account, Havertz to Chelsea is just one step away with a total agreement expected to be reached in the next hours.
It is added that Chelsea’s last bid, which totals €100m, is set to be accepted.
Kai Havertz to Chelsea, one step away and then… here we go! Total agreement to be reached on nest hours with Bayer Leverkusen. Last bid is going to be accepted. €80M + €20M add ons as final fee. Last details and paperworks time. #CFC #Havertz #Chelsea

However, though Romano is generally a reliable source, Leverkusen’s managing director Rudi Voller was quick to comment on these rumours, stating:
“This is nonsense.”
