Bayern Munich new signing Leroy Sane has appeared to confirm that Bayer Leverkusen striker Kai Havertz is heading to Chelsea this summer.
Chelsea have signed Ajax Moroccan playmaker Hakim Ziyech and RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner.
Havertz has been tipped to be Frank Lampard’s third summer signing.
The attacking midfielder, 21, is said to be keen to leave Leverkusen and play in the Champions League.
And Sane, who quit Manchester City earlier this month, has appeared to confirm his Germany team-mate is heading to Stamford Bridge.
“It‘s good for Chelsea, that they signed two German top talents with Werner and Havertz this summer.”
Reports on Thursday claimed Chelsea have agreed personal terms with Havertz ahead of a summer move.
The Germany ace will pen a five-year contract at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea are set to make a formal bid in the coming days, with the Blues ready to pay around £73m for the playmaker.
A lot has been made of Chelsea’s interest in Havertz, with Liverpool hero Jamie Carragher urging Lampard to strengthen at the back instead.
“Chelsea won’t go any further unless they change their goalkeeper.
“Going back to how important goalkeepers are, I look at this Chelsea team and there’s a lot I like about it, it does remind me in a lot of ways the position Jurgen Klopp was in a couple of years ago.
“He’s done as much as he can, yes Frank’s still in his early stages but those big signings can completely transform you as a team.
“I still think Chelsea need a defender, you see how many goals they’ve conceded. I think a lot of that is down to the goalkeeper being totally honest.”
Chelsea, who lost 5-3 at Liverpool on Wednesday night, are hoping to secure a top four finish on Sunday.
They host Wolverhampton Wanderers on the final day of the Premier League season on Sunday.
They need a point against Wolves to finish in the top four and secure Champions League football for next time out.
