Chelsea have come up higher in their bid to acquire the service of Kai Havertz as the London outfit, known as the blues have agreed to pay a new price to secure the deal.
Recall that the asking price for the skillful player was £90million.
The Daily Mail reports that Chelsea have stepped up their interest in securing Havertz’s signature and are ready to launch a £75million bid to lure him to Stamford Bridge.
It is claimed that Chelsea, despite knowing that they face stern competition to land his signature, are desperate to add him to Frank Lampard’s squad and have identified him as a player that they want.
Havertz is currently valued at the £75million mark and the Blues are willing to pay it, as they look to try and bridge the gap on their Premier League rivals.
Meanwhile, former Tottenham Hotspur striker Dimitar Berbatov recently compared Havertz to former Chelsea star Eden Hazard, as the Bulgarian outlined the fact that the Blues have not yet replaced the Belgian with a player of such magnitude.
Berbatov told Betfair: “I think it is interesting to see Chelsea linked with him, they haven’t really replaced Hazard since he left and it was always going to be difficult to do so.
“I think for sure they need to go for a young player with a lot of football ahead of them, if that is the case then they will also have to be patient as well because sometimes young players need time to adjust to the physicality and speed of Premier League.
