Kai Havertz had been with Germany’s squad in Stuttgart
Kai Havertz has left Germany’s training camp to fly to London ahead of a club-record move to Chelsea.
The Bayer Leverkusen midfielder is set to join Chelsea from the Bundesliga side after the clubs agreed a package of €80m plus €20m in add-ons on Wednesday, according to Sky in Germany.
Havertz was in Stuttgart with Germany’s squad for their UEFA Nations League fixtures, having been an unused substitute as they drew 1-1 with Spain on Thursday night.
Chelsea’s previous club-record deal was the signing of Kepa Arrizabalaga from Athletic Bilbao for £71.6m in 2018.
Earlier this week, Leverkusen’s head coach Peter Bosz said the 21-year-old is unlikely to train for the club again as he nears a move to the Premier League.
Havertz looks set to become Frank Lampard’s seventh summer signing, following the arrivals of Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech, Ben Chilwell, Thiago Silva, Malang Sarr and Xavier Mbuyamba.
As part of the deal, Chelsea have offered Leverkusen the chance to sign one of their summer arrivals, Sarr, on loan for the season.
