Chelsea are often linked with some of the best prospects in world football, this transfer window being no exception.
The Blues are reportedly following Bayer Leverkusen’s rising star Kai Havertz ‘very closely’, that is according to German Football expert Raphael Honigstein , who was speaking on The Transfer Talk Podcast.
He suggests that any deal will not happen until the summer, and that Chelsea face major competition for the midfielder’s signature in the shape of Manchester United and Bayern Munich just to name a couple.
“The two clubs mentioned earlier, Chelsea and Man United, I have on very good authority have been tracking him very closely.
“Why wouldn’t you? This is a guy who in a few years to come I think will be the outstanding Germany player and if you can get him now, you will try your best to do it.
“But the competition will not make it easy for any of the clubs who eventually get him.”
He also states that the fee needed to sign the German international will be around 100 million euros.

This will be one signing that if Chelsea want to make, they will have to be shrewd and quick with their business.
