Chelsea agree Kai Havertz transfer as Frank Lampard closes in on sixth signing
Chelsea have agreed a deal to sign Bayer Leverkusen star Kai Havertz. The Blues have been busy in the transfer window, with Frank Lampard making five signings. Chelsea have already signed Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner, Ben Chilwell, Thiago Silva and Malang Sarr.
The Blues have spent £135m so far, however, Lampard is still keen to make more additions.
Leverkusen star Havertz emerged as a top target for the Blues this summer and the Guardian say Chelsea have now agreed a deal for the Germany international, 21.
Chelsea will pay an initial £72m for the playmaker, which will see Lampard’s summer spending surpass £200m.
The Blues have agreed the club-record deal, which could see them pay up to £82m for Havertz including add-ons.

Man Utd in £53m transfer talks over winger with Jadon Sancho proving elusive
Manchester United are in talks with Juventus over a deal for Douglas Costa but the winger’s £53million price tag could be a stumbling block, according to reports.
The Brazil international is being eyed as an alternative to Jadon Sancho.
While Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to sign the Borussia Dortmund star, striking a deal has been tricky so far. Manchester United have spent most of their transfer window chasing Sancho, only to find Borussia Dortmund stubborn negotiators.
The Bundesliga giants will only let the England international go if their £108million asking price is met – a fee the Red Devils are unwilling to pay because of the coronavirus crisis.
As a result, United have been linked with alternatives.
Bayern Munich star Kingsley Coman has been tipped to move to Old Trafford but, in the wake of their 1-0 Champions League final win over PSG, a move away from the Allianz Arena is unlikely.
And Barcelona duo Ansu Fati and Ousmane Dembele, as well as Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish, have all been linked as well.
