Bayer Leverkusen send Kai Havertz social media message as Chelsea close in on £72m transfer

Chelsea are closing in on one of their top transfer targets this summer.

Frank Lampard has already added to his squad ahead of the new season with Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner joining the club earlier this year.

Following these two captures, Chelsea have been working hard to bring Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Kai Havertz to the club in order to add to their attacking potency.

The Blues have been locked in negotiations with the German club, but according to Sport Bild an agreement of £72 million up front with a further £18 million in add ons has been agreed between the clubs.
