Chelsea are closing in on the signing of Kai Havertz, who left Germany’s camp in Stuttgart on Friday.

Bayer Leverkusen forward Havertz will reportedly undergo a medical at Chelsea ahead of signing for what is expected to be an initial club-record fee of £72million (€80m), surpassing the outlay on Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Havertz’s arrival would take Chelsea’s spending on reinforcements for the 2020-21 season to over £200m, with Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner and Ben Chilwell having been secured ahead of the free transfers of Malang Sarr and Thiago Silva.

Since the start of 2018-19, he has scored 38 goals and supplied 15 assists in all competitions for Leverkusen.
