Chelsea are edging ever closer to securing a deal to take Bayer Leverkusen star Kai Havertz to Stamford Bridge as only the fee has to be sorted to get the transfer over the line.

Havertz has apparently told his club he wishes to leave after they failed to qualify for Champions League football next term.

The versatile midfielder has also agreed personal terms which will see him stay in west London for the next five year.

However, Chelsea have to come to an agreement with Leverkusen over the fee as they are not willing to pay more than £70million - which is £20m less than the asking price.

Marina Granovskaia has been working hard to make Havertz the Blues' third summer signing following the arrivals of Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner from Ajax and RB Leipzig, respectively.

And German publication Sport Bild claim a breakthrough may have been made as both clubs are open to a deal which includes add ons.
