Havertz could be a superb signing for the Blues, with the 21-year-old looking one of the finest young players in Europe and like an ideal long-term replacement for Eden Hazard at Stamford Bridge.

Bosz has suggested a decision has already been made by his star player, and has hinted with quotes to DPA International that an official confirmation on his next move could come very soon.

“Maybe the deciding call will come today, maybe next week, maybe never,” Bosz said of Havertz.
