Havertz is expected to leave Leverkusen at the end of the campaign after an outstanding season in which he has scored 15 goals and recorded eight assists.

Since the return of the Bundesliga, he has scored five times in six games for Bayer Leverkusen.

Chelsea are believed to have approached Bayer Leverkusen over the transfer of the 21 year old midfielder but it is believed Chelsea and Bayer Leverkusen are miles apart in the valuation of the player.
