Kai Havertz has been linked with a number of top clubs across Europe, and Chelsea are believed to be favourites for his signing.
Although Chelsea have signed up Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner ahead of next season, the Blues are still keen on Havertz.
Reliable journalist Christian Falk has now named Chelsea as the only club who can afford to sign Havertz at this time.
“In January, the agents informed Leverkusen about the clubs which are interested in Kai Havertz, and there was seven,” Christian Falk told Bleacher Report’s Football Ranks podcast.
“If you will see the road, it was Real Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich and at the end of this road, there was Chelsea. Now, Chelsea are ahead in this poker, because the other clubs can’t pay so much money at the moment.
“Chelsea showed with Werner that they can do that.”
