Havertz is heading for Chelsea, says Bayer coach

BERLIN (AFP) – Kai Havertz is probably going to Chelsea, Bayer Leverkusen coach Peter Bosz said yesterday.

The 21-year-old attacking midfielder is one of the most exciting young talents in the German game.

“Quite frankly, discussions have been going on for a long time and I assume that there is a better chance of Kai leaving than of him staying,” said the Dutch coach.

Before the coronavirus crisis, Leverkusen were asking EUR100 million for Havertz.

Chelsea have already acquired another Bundesliga star, Leipzig striker Timo Werner, for an estimated EUR53 million.

Meanwhile, Bosz said striker Kevin Volland is almost certainly about to sign for Monaco.

“If you ask me if I expect him to come back, my answer is clear, ‘no!’” said Bosz.
