Chelsea target Havertz set for crunch Bayer talks

Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Kai Havertz is planning clear the air transfer talks with management about his future.

Bayer Leverkuen chiefs are due to meet with star man Havertz, with the youngster keen to discuss his future amid Chelsea interest.

BILD says interest in Havertz has snowballed over the years and culminated in strong links to Chelsea this summer, with the midfielder requesting a meeting to discuss his future with Leverkusen bosses.

The Blues have emerged as strong favourites to land the star this summer, with Bild also reporting that Bayern Munich and Real Madrid are cooling their pursuit of Havertz this season.

Frank Lampard has already secured the arrival of Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner for a combined £81m this summer, seemingly excellent business before many of the west Londoners' rivals have dipped into the market at all.
