Bayern Munich emerge as favourites to sign Chelsea target Havertz

Bayern Munich are now favourites to sign Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Kai Havertz.

Chelsea were considered the frontrunners to sign the 21-year-old, who has starred in the Bundesliga this season.

However,The Telegraph says Bayern are working hard on keeping Havertz in Germany and are now discussing a deal worth more than £75m.

The Bavarians are determined to sign Havertz and their desire could topple Chelsea, who have already agreed a £53m deal for RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner.

The move for Havertz hasn't stopped Bayern's interest in Manchester City winger Leroy Sane.

Sane remains a transfer priority for Bayern, and the club will try and seal a huge double coup this summer.
