Done deal: Chelsea set to announce third signing of the summer

According to The Athletic, the Blues are close to announcing the signing of Kai Havertz from Bayer Leverkusen with only the small matter of the player’s personal terms left to sort before a transfer can materialise.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is said to have spoken to the player personally, just as he did with Havertz’s international team-mate Timo Werner.

The Blues have led the race for the 21 year old despite interest from the likes of Real Madrid and Bayern Munich, and are reportedly the only club willing to meet the Bundesliga side’s asking price – thought to be around £73million.

Chelsea will reportedly pay around €65m (£59m) up front, before another €15m (£13m) in add-ons for the transfer of Havertz.

Havertz is one of the most sought-after players in Europe after scoring 17 goals in all competitions and providing 8 assists from midfield.

    Kai Harvetz signing will be great for Chelsea in 2020/2021 season. However, we need to match that with 3 other signings to make sense:
    1. A good Centre Back with height
    2. A good Left Back
    3. A good, agile and consistent Goalkeeper.

  2. thats great for chealse , but we need willian to remain at chelsea to lead this young players and possiblly menture them , us chelsea shoould perioterze on defence and in sure kante remain he is the main midfielder now.

  3. Good news for Chelsea and her fan super Frank please buy a stable center defender and left back William should stay

    Super Frankie has to make it next season coz of the good prayers he has signed

  6. Great to have a flexible no 10 but getting a good keeper is a priority too.

    Blues is arrive

  8. Good news for us Chelsea funs, fantastic sauad next season

  9. Chelsea must keel William
    So far

  10. Frank lampard deserved to be the manager of the season…..coz of the situation he has passed through with the young lads in the squad……but we should go for a good defender like Mings..Ake…

  11. I thought there was a buy back clause in AKE’s transfer to Bournemouth….y is it that we don’t even talk about it and I heard that he’s going to mancity…..I think it’s a blander….

  12. Great stuff, obviously we are shaping up nicely so far n it’s good for us but we need to reinforce our shaky defence by getting a good centre back,left back n a good goalkeeper like Oblak then we r good to compete for the title in de next campaign. I submit

  13. William should stay, we need a gud defender dat can command d backline. We need another central forward, not a false 9 like timo. With Kia in d Atkng mid, we are gud to go.

    Good move, look for an alternative keeper too.

  15. Hazard Hasati | July 22, 2020 at 9:13 pm |

    Bring a competitive GK

  16. Super Frankie pliz something about kepas no, He isn’t persistent GK

    Well done Mr Frank, try to sort out the defence now.

    Talking of solidifying our defense,I hope buying only one strong centre back would be great. From a look of things if we can maintain the 3-4-3 formation we have used for the past 2 games I think we can produce more goals game after game. Conte won the title with kinda formation not only because we had super Hazard, magical Costa and Speedstar Pedro but also because of the solid Azplicueta-Luiz-Cahill Partnership. With the coming in of Ziyech and Werner, we’ll see more goals coming as but if defense problem remain unsolved surely we’ll suffer similar terrible defeats.Bringing in Ake type of a centre back to form a solid backline along side Azplicueta and Rudiger/Zouma/Tomori will help.
