Bayer Leverkusen have accepted a €100 million bid for Kai Havertz from Chelsea. The German forward agreed personal terms with Chelsea last month and is set to join the London club.
It looks like Chelsea are getting their man.
Havertz, who was primarily linked with Bayern Munich, has chosen Chelsea after Bayern couldn't afford him after their recent signing of Leroy Sane.
Christian Falk and Fabrizio Romano have confirmed the bid was agreed upon today on their respective Twitter accounts.
