According to reports in Germany, Chelsea are getting closer to breaking a German transfer record with the signing of Kai Havertz in the coming days.
According to German media outlet BILD via Daily Express, Chelsea have been in negotiations with Bayer Leverkusen to sign Havertz since last week, and are closing in on a deal.
Chelsea made Timo Werner the most expensive German after his transfer from RB Leipzig, triggering his £53m release clause and the Blues are set to break that record with the signing of Havertz in the coming days.
Havertz has reportedly agreed personal terms with the Blues and will sign a five-year deal once the transfer fee is agreed with Bayer Leverkusen.
Bayer Leverkusen reportedly agreed to let Havertz join Chelsea once their Europa League campaign ended, which it did earlier this month as they were defeated by Inter Milan.
