Chelsea are finally said to be closing in on Bayer Leverkusen star Kai Havertz following the Bundesliga side’s Europa League exit at the hands of Inter Milan on Monday night.

Speculation earlier in the day suggested the Blues had agreed to a deal with the player, reported by the Evening Standard as “desperate” to join the Blues ahead of the new season.

Leverkusen sporting director Rudi Voller has been vocal about his desire to keep hold of the impressive 21-year-old in recent weeks, with Die Werkself adamant that Havertz would not leave before the conclusion of the club’s Europa League campaign.

That came sooner than Voller might have hoped following Monday’s 2-1 defeat — a result that could seal Havertz’ departure.

According to the Standard, all that remains is for Havertz to agree to personal terms, with Frank Lampard ready to splash out £70 million for his signature.

Havertz, described by Leverkusen manager Peter Bosz as the best player to ever play for Leverkusen, ended a fine campaign by netting his side’s only goal in Monday’s loss.
