Chelsea are reportedly putting the final touches to their move for German sensation Kai Havertz, with the midfielder set for a medical on Sunday.
Frank Lampard’s side have been linked with the exciting youngster all summer, and now talks have reached the advanced stages.
Now Havertz will undertake a medical for his new club on Sunday before completing a deal which is set to shatter the British transfer record, according to Bild.
The German publication state all formalities are done and now the 23-year-old has only to pass medicial examinations.
Havertz would join fellow German star Timo Werner, who was a big money arrival for the Blues earlier in the window.
Just this week Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger had joked he had acted as an agent to bring Werner to Stamford Bridge, and was hoping to do the same with Havertz.
It is reported that Chelsea will pay Leverkusen’s asking price of £90million (€100m) plus add-ons.
This will make the deal the most lucrative in British transfer history, surpassing the deal Manchester Unite struck with Juventus for the transfer of Paul Pogba.
