The German midfielder is expected to complete a £90 million move to the London to join Frank Lampard’s side and fellow Germans Timo Werner and Antonio Rudiger.
Havertz is expected to sign a five-year-deal at Chelsea. After several times of denying any move to the Blues, his current club Bayer Leverkusen have now admitted defeat.
🗣Bosz: "Volland and the national players didn’t participate today. Bailey also wasn’t there. Unfortunately our squad isn’t set yet. I don’t expect Volland and Havertz to train with us again. It’s possible more players will transfer. We definitely still have to add some players.” pic.twitter.com/8pT1icQgWZ

“Unfortunately, our squad has not yet been determined. I no longer expect that Volland and Havertz will train with us again,” manager Peter Bosz admitted.
“It’s possible that other players will also switch. We definitely have to bring players in too.”
Havertz linked up with the German National team today after missing out on Leverkusen’s performance test yesterday.
Fabrizio Romano also reports that the announcement is ‘just a matter of time now’ as the announcement is prepared, medicals still to be completed and for the contracts to be finalised.
