Kai Havertz gives next week deadline for Chelsea’s deal

CHELSEA are preparing for their FA Cup final against Arsenal, having secured Champions League football for next season by finishing fourth in the Premier League.

Off the pitch, the Blues are pressing ahead with a move for Kai Havertz, who wants to seal his transfer to Stamford Bridge next week.

Kai Havertz reportedly wants to seal his Chelsea transfer by next week following the club’s successful Champions League qualification.

According to Sky Sports, the German has already agreed terms on a move to West London, with a fee between Chelsea and Bayer Leverkusen all that remains to be settled.

The Bundesliga side value their star attacker at around £90million but the Blues are hoping to lower the figure by around £20m with add-ons.

In other news, Chelsea star Willian has FIVE offers on the table, his agent Kia Joorabchian has revealed.

He told talkSPORT: “I don’t think he’s done a U-turn or any kind of turn, he’s always been very much the same mode.

“We had big offers – one from MLS which required him to move on July 1 – but he’s always wanted to finish the season at Chelsea and the day after the season has finished he would decide.

“He has two concrete offers from Premier League clubs on the table, an offer from an MLS club, and two other offers from Europe. He is going to make his decision after the last game of the season.”

Meanwhile, Jan Oblak will remain at Atletico Madrid despite interest from Chelsea, Enrique Cerezo has maintained.

The Atleti chief told Marca: “For me, Oblak, and I speak as a fan, is the best goalkeeper in the world. [Thibaut] Courtois is another great goalkeeper and, fortunately, both have worn our badge and with both we won many trophies.

“I always say that Oblak has a contract with Atletico and is the best goalkeeper in the world. It is not strange that he has offers from great teams other than Atletico.”

And finally, Chelsea have been joined by Bayer Leverkusen in the race for Ajax goalkeeper Andre Onana.

The German side reportedly had a £20million offer rejected by the Dutch champions which will be a concern for the Blues.
