Some Chelsea fans were taken aback by a perfectly-placed lobbed pass from transfer target Kai Havertz in Bayer Leverkusen’s clash with Rangers earlier today.
In the 36th minute of Leverkusen’s Europa League second-leg tie vs Scottish giants Rangers, Havertz picked up the ball and floated it towards the middle of the box with an inch-perfect pass.
Leverkusen attacker Moussa Diaby did his teammate not justice as he sent the ball well wide of the goal with a wayward volley, the German outfit already boasted a considerable lead so it wasn’t costly.
According to ESPN, Chelsea are confident of landing the 21-year-old for between £70-75m, despite Leverkusen so far holding out for £90m.
That report also hints that agreeing personal terms with Havertz will be no problem at all for Chelsea.
Take a look at the lovely pass which deserved a better finish on the end below:

Here’s how some of the Chelsea faithful have reacted to the moment:
Werner in the end if that cross and it’s 1-0 ??

Havertz made a very beautiful pass. Imagine him, Pulisic and Ziyech feeding Werner crosses ??. I won’t be surprised if Werner scores 30+ goals next season ?

Pulisic, Werner, Abraham, Ziyech would bag that pass easy.

Havertz has firmly established himself as one of Germany’s brightest talents over the last couple of seasons, the ace seems ready for the challenge that comes with being at a bigger club now though.
Havertz was solid for Leverkusen this season, bagging 17 goals and adding nine assists, the versatile attacker would be a fine recruit for Frank Lampard’s side this summer.
The prospect of teaming up in a devastating attack alongside international teammate Timo Werner will certainly continue to excite Chelsea supporters.
