Kai Havertz has been a name on the lips of plenty of Chelsea fans this summer, with the Bayer Leverkusen talent tipped to join the Blues as they strengthen ahead of the 2020/21
The German international won’t come cheap, though, and Chelsea have reportedly lodged a €70m bid in an effort to test Leverkusen’s resolve.
Journalist Nicolo Schira reports the €70m is a base offer, with the bid also including unspecified add-ons, while Chelsea will fund the move by selling Jorginho, Emerson and Tiemoue Bakayoko.
Jorginho has played just 100 minutes for Chelsea since the Premier League resumed in June, and has been linked with a move to Juventus to be reunited with former Blues boss Maurizo Sarri.
Emerson has been interesting Inter Milan, while Bakayoko – currently on loan at Monaco – has been mentioned in connection with AC Milan and Paris Saint-Germain.
