Transfer mogul Fabrizio Romano reports Chelsea are negotiating with Bayer Leverkusen and preparing a new bid for the playmaker.
The Blues have been trying to sign the 21-year-old for a while now. Earlier this week, Chelsea made their first bid of €70m which fell short of Bayer Leverkusen’s valuation of the player by €20m.
European giants like Barcelona and Real Madrid were previously interested but owing to the current COVID-19 financial situation, their hands are tied.
Bayer Leverkusen knows that the youngster wants to leave this summer. Understandably so, they want clarity over the deal before the players return to pre-season training next week.
Havertz, a product of Bayer Leverkusen’s academy, is keen on joining Frank Lampard’s Project Rebuild. Playing in the Premier League is Havertz’s life-long dream and he is desperate for a move to West London.
Kai Havertz has been labeled as a ‘generational talent’ and the german media claims that he is an Alleskönner- a player who can do anything. Regardless of what deal Chelsea strike with Bayer Leverkusen for Havertz, it can be a bargain considering the potential of the player.
