According to reports, Chelsea are set to announce the signing of Kai Havertz this week.

German media outlet Bild claim Havertz missed Bayer Leverkusen’s performance tests over the weekend as he closes in on a transfer to Chelsea.

The German wonderkid is set to cost Chelsea around £90million, with the Blues paying £70million plus £20million in bonuses.

Chelsea have spent big this summer in the club’s summer rebuild under Frank Lampard.

Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner, Ben Chilwell, Malang Sarr and Thiago Silva have all joined the Blues this summer.

Meanwhile, Aston Villa are reportedly interested in signing Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham this summer with Villa boss Dean Smith keen on strengthening his attack.

Abraham scored 26 goals for the Midlands outfit and helped fire them to top-flight promotion in 2019 during his time on loan at Aston Villa but isn’t interested in re-joining Aston Villa this summer as he is determined to battle Timo Werner for a first-team spot at Stamford Bridge.
