If Chelsea are to sign Bayer Leverkusen attacking midfielder Kai Havertz, there’s no better opportunity than now.

Bayer Leverkusen beat Mainz in their final Bundesliga game of the season on Saturday but missed out on a place in the Champions League qualifying positions, finishing fifth in the table.

For Chelsea, now is the perfect time to push for the signing of Havertz as the 21 year old wants to play Champions League football next season.

Havertz finished the German football season in the form of his life, managing 17 goal contributions from his last 16 matches across all competitions.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard feels Havertz would be the right signing to help coax the best from Timo Werner, who scored a brace on his final outing for Leipzig on Saturday afternoon.

Chelsea must act fast as Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Manchester United are also interested in the 21 year old attacking midfielder.
