Chelsea was knocked out of the Champions League by Bayern Munich with an embarrassing aggregate score of 7-1. It seemed they had forgotten to play football as Lewandoski made a record of having 3+ goals and assists in a single Champions League match.
Frank Lampard is a quick learner and he has already started planning for the next season. Chelsea had already signed Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner. They were interested in Bayer Leverkusen star Kai Havertz. According to a report by RMC Sport, Chelsea has now agreed on personal terms with the Germany international.
Kai Havertz will join the London club on a five-year deal this summer. But Chelsea and Leverkusen still have to negotiate over the transfer fee for the 21-year-old.
Bayer Leverkusen value Havertz at £90million and Leverkusen chief Rudi Voller insisted that there would be no ‘COVID discount’ for the club’s most prized asset.
Kai Havertz has scored 17 goals in all competitions for Bayer Leverkusen this season and helped the side advance to the Europa League quarter-finals with a 4-1 aggregate win over Rangers on Thursday.
The 21-year-old’s versatility and willingness to play across various forward positions only adds to his value. Voller described him as a mixture of Michael Ballack and Mesut Ozil.
Voller told Gazzetta dello Sport: “We know of the interest of a couple of clubs, especially Chelsea, but for us, the situation is quite simple; he has a two-year contract, if anyone wants him on our terms, fine, otherwise he stays here another year and we are happy.”
“It won’t be easy, but for an artist like him there is no Covid discount.”
But Chelsea remain optimistic of negotiating a transfer fee after agreeing on personal terms with Kai Havertz. Chelsea would like to make staggered payments instead of paying all the money upfront, due to the financial uncertainties inflicted by the Coronavirus pandemic.
