It doesn’t say how much Chelsea have bid for the Germany international, but it’s previously been reported that Leverkusen want big money for him.
See below as Jan Age Fjortoft stated Chelsea were still some way off the Bundesliga giants’ valuation of the 21-year-old, which stands at around €100million, or £90m…
Leverkusen want 100 mill Euro. Chelsea have offered 80. In their negotiations they now try to find a model for the the 20…through installments/ bonuses

Chelsea have already spent big strengthening their attack this summer with early moves for Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech.
Still, Frank Lampard lost Eden Hazard this summer, along with Willian and Pedro this year, so another signing like Havertz could be very useful at Stamford Bridge.
It now just remains to be seen if CFC really still have enough to spend on getting this deal over the line.
