Top German journalist Christian Falk claimed on Tuesday that Chelsea were serious about signing Kai Havertz from Bayer Leverkusen after approaching the German club.
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard sees the 20 year old attacking midfielder as a perfect replacement for Willian and Pedro, who are expected to leave the club at the end of the season.
Talks between Chelsea and Bayer Leverkusen for the 20 year old are going well and according to Italian journalist Nicolo Schira, the Blues have offered a lucrative contract to the young attacking midfielder.
Chelsea have reportedly offered Havertz a five year contract with wages of €8 million a year (£7.1 million).
Bayer Leverkusen have also reportedly told the Blues they want €80 million for Havertz.
Meanwhile, former Liverpool and Bayern Munich star Dietmar Hamann has previously claimed the Bundesliga star would improve any team in the Premier League, but tipped Manchester United as the best destination for the 20-year-old.
“I think a lot of Premier League clubs will be interested in him, he’s a terrific player and there’s not many better around at the moment,” he told Sky Sports.
“If you look at Manchester United, it’s very clear they need new personnel going forward, and I think he’d improve pretty much every team.
“Liverpool are a bit different with the way they set-up and play, but besides that I think he improves every team.
“Before the break people were talking about three figures, a hundred-odd million, if that’s a price any club is prepared to pay in the summer, I’m not sure, but the likelihood is he will leave Leverkusen and take on another challenge in the summer.”
