source: Havertz transfer 'all but done' as salary and transfer fee agreed

The reputable journalist says that Chelsea are very close to signing the player and a deal could be finalised very soon.

The Blues are understood to be closing in on the signing of Kai Havertz from Bayer Leverkusen, according to the reliable reporter David Ornstein of The Athletic.

Lampard and Co were expecting a tough fight to land the player, but they are now the only club who can pay Leverkusen's asking price.

Personal terms are almost agreed and Havertz wants to move to Stamford Bridge - qualification for Champions League is not a factor in his decision.

Sources have indicated it will most probably be about €80 million after add-ons and Chelsea would prefer it takes the form of €65 million plus €15 million.

The project they are embarking upon, the vision they have for his role, a promising young squad and Lampard’s presence were elements that appealed to the 21-year-old.

Havertz's salary does not pose a problem for the FA Cup finalists and only the finer details need to be ironed out.

The Athletic are the most reliable source of information and Ornstein is a known figure in the world of transfer rumours - as things stand, it won't be long before the German international is a Chelsea player.
