According to ESPN, Chelsea are confident of landing the 21-year-old for between £70-75m, despite the German outfit holding out for £90m for their prized asset.
Havertz looks set to team up with international teammate Timo Werner in what could shape up to be one of the Premier League’s most devastating attacking lines, with Hakim Ziyech’s signature also secured.
Havertz has impressed in the Bundesliga for several years now, the ace looks ready to test himself in respectably a much more competitive and popular league in the English top-flight.
This will undoubtedly be the best news of the night for Chelsea fans, who are losing 2-1 in their second-leg Champions League tie against Bayern Munich, meaning they’re down 5-1 on aggregate.
