It’s been a long-running transfer saga, but it appears that Kai Havertz’s move to Chelsea is edging closer to completion.
The German striker didn’t play for the national side in their 1-1 draw against Spain, one can only assume because his move to the Premier League outfit was pending.
On Friday morning, Havertz’s current club, Bayer Leverkusen, announced on Twitter that the player had left the Stuttgart headquarters of the German National team in order to get things sorted regarding the move to the west Londoners.

The next stage of the process will be the medical, and should Havertz pass that without any problems, then the final act will be to put pen to paper.
Havertz will join up with countryman, Timo Werner, signed earlier in the summer from RB Leipzig, as well as other new recruits, Hakim Ziyech, Thiago Silva, Ben Chilwell and Malang Sarr, though it’s believed the latter may be sent out on loan.
