Recent reports claim Frank Lampard’s side have already agreed personal terms with Bayer Leverkusen sensation Kai Havertz, but are yet to agree a fee. With the German club still holding out for £90m despite the implications of the coronavirus pandemic on club finance.
And according to the latest report form a well respected journalist Fabrizio Romano claim that the transfer for the German sensation to Stamford Bridge could happen in a matter of days, with Inter Milan lying in wait on Monday to make their interest known.
He says the fee for Havertz will likely be in the region of £71m, which would represent a club-record fee for Chelsea. And the Blues have been warned once again that other sides could meet Leverkusen’s asking price, even if they don’t.
Sporting director Voller, speaking to Gazzetta dello Sport, We are aware of Chelsea interest but is adamant Havertz will not come cheap. And will not sell any player before the end of the Europa League.
He continued: “If Chelsea want to sign Kai, they must pay what we ask. No lower price because of Covid-19.
