Chelsea have intensified their pursuit of Kai Havertz of Bayer Leverkusen with the two clubs negotiating. Leverkusen is seeking a €90 million fee.
Chelsea are confident a deal can be reached closer to €80 million.
Havertz wants to move to Stamford Bridge and has indicated through his intermediaries that personal terms will not be an issue.
The Blues are not expected to have any competition for Havertz's signature with Real Madrid and Bayern Munich declining to follow up their interest.
