CHELSEA are reportedly putting the final touches on their £90million move for Kai Havertz.
Bild claim the 21-year-old completed a medical for the Blues on Sunday and everything set in place to now complete a British transfer record deal.
The German outlet adds that all formalities have been agreed with Bayer Leverkusen and the attacker is set to be announced in the coming days.
The Guardian has previously claimed that the Blues have agreed an initial club-record £72m fee to sign the starlet after months of haggling.
Leverkusen can then recoup an extra £9m if certain performance-related bonuses are fulfilled, including Chelsea winning the Champions League.
And the Blues will hand over a further £9m as an installment at a later date.
Leverkusen are already set for Havertz’s exit after agreeing a deal for his replacement – Roma forward Patrik Schick.
Bayer boss Peter Bosz even admitted they “don’t expect” to see their star youngster again, after waving him off to Germany duty.
Havertz is ready to pen a five-year contract worth more than £300,000 a week to catapult him into the top earnings league.
The deal will make him the Premier League’s fourth-highest earner behind Mesut Ozil, David De Gea and Kevin De Bruyne.
The attacker’s absence from Leverkusen’s pre-season fitness tests on Sunday further fuelled speculation his move to Chelsea was imminent.

Havertz has been a star at BayArena since he became the club’s youngest-ever Bundesliga player in October 2016.
A tally of 18 goals and nine assists in all competitions last season was not enough to secure the club Champions League football, pushing him towards a move.
And he will join countryman Timo Werner in the capital next season, along with fellow summer buys Hakim Ziyech, Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell.
