Chelsea’s operation to sign Kai Havertz this summer is moving forward with Antonio Rudiger trying to convince him to move to Stamford Bridge.

Rudiger, who plays alongside Havertz with the Germany national team, has been in contact with the Bayer Leverkusen wonderkid for a ‘couple of weeks’ to discuss him making west London his new home.

Chelsea have already signed Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner this summer, and Frank Lampard wants to add Havertz also to further improve his already exciting squad.
