Chelsea certainly appear to be getting closer and closer to signing Kai Havertz this summer. Monday’s big report from The Athletic has been followed by subsequent confirmatory rumblings from various sources, including a couple form Germany, citing their own sources as well rather than just re-reporting others.

Sky Deutschland, for example, claim that all other clubs can be “deleted” from contention, as Havertz has “fully agreed” with the Blues. Sport Bild’s information is not quite as definitive, but they do expect negotiations to pick up in earnest now between the two clubs, which would seem to indicate that Havertz has made it known to Chelsea that he’s game to take his talents to the SW6.
