Chelsea are continuing to be heavily linked with making a move to sign Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Kai Havertz this summer, but a lot could depend on where the club finish in the Bundesliga this season.
According to a fresh report from The Telegraph last night, Chelsea believe they can sign Havertz for £70 million, should Leverkusen fail to qualify for Champions League
At the moment Bayer value the 21-year old rising star at £90 million, but Chelsea only want to pay up to £70 million.
But there is a belief that the asking price may have to drop if Leverkusen fail to finish in the top four.
Chelsea ‘sense an opportunity’ with Havertz, as his other admirers Bayern Munich are only thought to be interested in him next summer, and Manchester United have other high profile targets such as Jadon Sancho and Jack Grealish.
Leverkusen are currently in 4th place in the Bundesliga, but only by 1 point.
