Kai Havertz is close to moving to Chelsea, however, there are conflicting reports in Germany about whether the star has completed the medical examination so far. What remains clear is that Chelsea have signed a deal with Bayer Leverkusen to sign the 21-year-old this summer.
The two clubs shook hands over a deal early last week that will see Havertz move to Chelsea after the international break for an initial £ 72m.
Thought this step is as good as it did while waiting for the ad that has been pending for about 10 days.
There was speculation this was due to the details surrounding the additions included in the deal.
Another theory suggests that this is because Bayer Leverkusen wants to sign his replacement first before confirming Havertz’s departure.
