Chelsea target Kai Havertz has told Bayer Leverkusen to hurry up and agree a transfer deal with the Blues so he can start training with Frank Lampard’s side as soon as possible, it’s been claimed.
Havertz, 21, has been linked with a move to Chelsea since the start of the summer.
And it finally looks like the club are gaining some serious ground on agreeing a deal for the German.
It’s said that Havertz wants to join Chelsea, but the two sides are around £18million apart on a valuation.

But Havertz is rushing Leverkusen to agree a fee with Chelsea so he can fly to London and begin training ahead of the new season.
Footballer-turned-Bundesliga-expert Jan Aage Fjortoft says that Havertz is in constant discussion with his current club about the move.
Fjortoft tweeted: “Havertz has told his Leverkusen-bosses: ‘I want to play for Chelsea.

“‘And please don’t take too long agreeing a fee with them, because I want to start training there as quick as possible’.
“Leverkusen want €100m. Chelsea have offered €80m. In their negotiations they now try to find a model for the the €20m…through instalments/ bonuses.
“His personal terms already agreed. Contract till 2025.
“[Roman] Abramovich, [Marina} Granovskaia and Lampard are all on the same page here.”
The new Premier League season begins on September 12, despite last season only concluding at the end of July.
Chelsea have already signed attacking players Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner.
It’s thought that Werner and Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger have spent time trying to convince Havertz to join the west London side.
Signing Havertz would show even more intention from owner Roman Abramovich that he wants Chelsea to be title contenders again.
Chelsea also reportedly want to sign a couple of defenders and a new goalkeeper.
