Chelsea prepare bid for £75m star to pair up with Werner. Chelsea will attempt another raid on the Bundesliga with a move for Bayer Leverkusen starlet Kai Havertz.
Expected to seal the £53m transfer of RB Leipzig centre forward Timo Werner when the transfer window opens, Chelsea also want a young wide player to replace the outgoing Brazilian Willian and Spaniard Pedro.
It is understood that 20-year-old Havertz is the player they want, even though they will face fierce competition from other top European clubs.
Chelsea will have to spend heavily to win the race, with Havertz’s market value sitting north of £75m and the player under contract until 2022. They have already spent £38m on attacking midfielder Hakim Ziyech of Ajax.
Chelsea are prepared to shelve plans to recruit a new goalkeeper this summer, despite assessing a number of potential candidates after a dip in form led to doubts about Kepa Arrizabalaga’s long-term future.
