Are Very Close To Striking A Deal For Kai Havertz
Chelsea FC under Frank Lampard
have been enjoying some successes on the pitch, off the pitch, and in the
transfer market this season, considering they’re coming off the back of a
transfer ban that prevented them from signing players this season.
The Blues have progressed to the
final of the FA Cup after thrashing Manchester United 3:1 at Wembley on Sunday
and will now face city rivals Arsenal in the final.
Chelsea fans are excited at the
prospect of Frank Lampard’s first professional managerial silverware with the
club where he carved a niche for himself as a legend. They will also be excited
about the report that Germany international and Bayern Leverkusen midfielder
Kai Havertz could join the club in the coming days.

Chelsea are closing in on a deal
for the highly-rated midfielder after holding talks with him. Multiple sources

The likes of Man United,
Liverpool, Barcelona, and Real Madrid have been linked with the versatile

The forward has reportedly said
he would be interested in a move to Chelsea as long as they secure Champions

League games left, one away to Liverpool at Anfield and one at home to Wolves.

If this report turns out to be
concrete, then Chelsea have an attacking gem on their hands and hopefully, do
not falter in the next two Premier League games and seal a place in next season’s
UEFA Champions League.
