Exclusive: Chelsea close in on three blockbuster £50m+ signings in stunning blitz Chelsea close in on £90m Kai Havertz deal

The 26-year-old is ready to leave Stamford Bridge having failed to convince Frank Lampard of his long-term worth, with Marcos Alonso set to battle impending new signing Ben Chilwell for a starting spot.

Chelsea are close to agreeing on deals to sign Bayer Leverkusen midfielder, Kai Havertz, Leicester left-back Ben Chilwell and former Paris Saint-Germain captain Thiago Silva, Sky Sport reports.

SunSport reports that the West London club has now been given the green light to finalise his deal after Roman Abramovich released a sum of £150 million for the move.

Even though Chelsea were swift in completing the transfer of Timo Werner from RB Leipzig, the differences with Leverkusen when it comes to the valuation of Havertz has prolonged a deal.

This means that Kepa Arrizabalaga's £71.6m move from Athletic Bilbao means he is now the second most expensive player in the Blues squad.

Finally, Havertz will join Chelsea in a club record $118 million deal following the completion of a medical later this week, according to The Telegraph. "Total Transfer fee 100 Million Euros including adds on", Falk tweeted.

The Blues have been chasing the German hotshot, 21, all summer.

Legit.ng earlier reported that Kai Havertz' move to Chelsea is pulling through with latest reports saying the Blues are closing in on a deal which will make the player the most expensive German footballer ever.

Havertz has always been linked with a transfer to Chelsea FC this summer and he has earned a reputation as one of the top young attacking midfielders in Europe.

The club is also expected the complete the signing of free agent Malang Sarr, who left OGC Nice at the end of the season, on a five-year deal, according to Telefoot.
