Kai Havertz want Chelsea deal so as to united with fellow country men
Bayer Leverkusen attacker Kai Havertz is reportedly keen to link up with German compatriots Timo Werner and Antonio Rudiger at Chelsea.
Speculation has gathered pace surrounding Havertz’s future in recent days, with Chelsea supposedly in pole position to secure the 21-year-old’s signature ahead of next season.
The German playmaker will supposedly cost in the region of £90m, however, potentially putting off potential buyers in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
Chelsea not willing to pay Havertz asking price
We all know by now that Kai Havertz is a key transfer target for Chelsea this summer – but he will not be cheap.
The 21-year-old Bayer Leverkusen star is available for the right price, but it appears as though that price is a cool £90m.
According to Sky Sports, Chelsea are not willing to pay that much – but Havertz’s representatives are said to hope that a deal can be struck based on substantial add-ons being reflected in the overall price.

Nevertheless, The Telegraph reports that Havertz is eyeing up a move to the blue side of London in order to play alongside his international teammates Rudiger and Werner.
Werner will wear the Chelsea colours for the 2020-21 campaign after completing a move from RB Leipzig last month, while Rudiger has turned out 109 times for the Blues since arriving from Roma in 2017.
Havertz, who has also been linked with the likes of Liverpool, Manchester United and Bayern Munich, has registered 17 goals and nine assists for Leverkusen across all competitions this term.
Chelsea offered two players by Juventus in Jorginho swap
Chelsea have reportedly been offered the choice of two players by Juventus as the Italian giants look to strike a deal for Jorginho.
Former Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri is determined to be reunited with Jorginho again having taken him from Napoli to London having worked with him in at the Serie A side
According to Tuttosport, Juve are willing to part ways with Aaron Ramsey or Adrien Rabiot as they attempt to lure Jorginho back to Italy.
The report claims that Chelsea are reluctant to sell for less than the £58m they originally paid for the 28-year-old, but the Blues will likely lower their asking price should a part-exchange deal be agreed upon.
Jorginho has turned out 37 times in all competitions for Chelsea this term – notching up six goals and two assists for Frank Lampard’s men.
Elsewhere, Chelsea are supposedly at the head of the queue for Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Kai Havertz.
