According to reports in Germany, Chelsea have held talks to sign Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Kai Havertz with the German side reportedly asking for £111 million.

Premier League rivals Manchester City, Liverpool and Manchester United have also reportedly held talks with the German club to sign Havertz. Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Real Madrid are also interested in the 20 year old midfielder.

According to German media outlet Bild via Metro, Havertz will be allowed to leave Bayer Leverkusen at the end of the season.

Havertz has already made 98 appearances in the Bundesliga, scoring 26 goals and registering 20 assists. He also has seven caps for Germany.

Early this month, Havertz hinted he could leave the Bundesliga at the end of the season.

“I think I’ve picked up enough international experience at Leverkusen,” he told Marca.

“I know the rhythm of these international matches and I’m confident that I can go abroad at any moment and play at clubs outside of Germany.

“For the moment, I want to have a good season. Afterwards, we’ll see.”
