Bayer Leverkusen star Kai Havertz is keen on joining Chelsea and have reportedly told the German club he wants to leave for Stamford Bridge this summer.

Chelsea are keen on signing the 21-year-old German star, but Leverkusen are stiff as regards selling the highly rated German.

And now, Bayer Sporting director Rudi Voller has warned Chelsea, that the Blues won’t be given any discount despite the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on football’s economy.

Asked if the club had already agreed to sell the 21-year-old, Voller told Gazzetta dello Sport: “No, but with his talent, it means he’s on the list of all the best clubs.

“We know of the interest of a couple of clubs, especially Chelsea, but for us, the situation is quite simple; he has a two-year contract, if anyone wants him on our terms, fine, otherwise he stays here another year and we are happy.

“It won’t be easy, but for an artist like him there is no Covid discount.”

Havertz has enjoyed an impressive season with 17 goals in all competitions from a midfield position.
