Petr Cech to fly to Germany to hold ‘face-to-face talks’ with Bayer Leverkusen over £70m Kai Havertz to Chelsea transfer

CHELSEA will reportedly fly out Petr Cech to Germany to tempt £70m Bayer Leverkusen ace Kai Havertz to Stamford Bridge.

The German outfit were originally demanding an eye-watering £90m fee for the impressive forward but with only two years remaining on his contract they are resigned to losing him for less.

According to Sky Germany, Blues technical director Cech is set to hold “face-to-face talks” with the 21-year-old.

The Chelsea legend also helped pulled the strings of Timo Werner’s deal when he made an “undercover” trip to Germany before lockdown.

Cech, who speaks fluent German, was on hand at the time to iron out any communication issues with the player’s father and agent.

Chelsea star Antonio Rudiger also helped his side to seal deal but Cech may not have to do too much convincing when it comes to Havertz.

The German midfielder is said to be keen on a switch to West London despite attracting interest from the likes of Bayern Munich, Manchester City and Real Madrid.

Frank Lampard has made him the club’s No.1 signing, having already landed striker Werner and winger Hakim Ziyech.

Personal terms are said to have been agreed while only fine details need to be finalised between both parties.

Havertz has bought into the project that Lampard is building having spoken with the Blues gaffer.

And Leverkusen boss Peter Bosz acknowledged in June that the midfield maestro could be sold before August.

Chelsea are close to clinching Champions League football for next season, with a win in either of their two remaining Premier League games enough to secure their place in Europe’s top competition.

But Havertz is understood to be willing to join Chelsea regardless of whether they qualify for the Champions League or not.

Leverkusen’s sporting director Rudi Voller revealed earlier this month that there is an agreement with the player that he will be allowed to leave ahead of the next campaign.

He said: “We have an agreement – if it fits, he can go this summer.”

Havertz enjoyed another stunning season for the German side this term – chipping in with 17 goals and nine assists in 43 games in all competitions.
