How close is Chelsea to signing Kai Havertz? Chelsea boss Frank Lampard responds

Chelsea have been strongly linked with a summer move for Bayer Leverkusen attacking midfielder Kai Havertz.

According to reports, Chelsea are edging closer to completing a move for the Bayer Leverkusen star, who has told his club he wants to leave.

Ahead of Chelsea’s game against Sheffield United on Saturday, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard remained coy when asked about the latest update on Chelsea’s move for Haverz.

Asked about Havertz, Lampard said: “Unfortunately it’s another answer from me that that is not something I want to broach at this moment in time.

“My focus is completely on the game. So I don’t want to give you any ifs buts or maybes for the summer, my focus has to be on the here and now.”
