Chelsea sign Kai Havertz from Bayer Leverkusen for £70m plus add-ons

Chelsea have completed the signing of Kai Havertz from Bayer Leverkusen for a club record deal.

The German midfielder arrives for around £70million + add-ons.

Havertz has impressed in the Bundesliga over the past couple of seasons, catching the eye of many of Europe's top teams.

But it is Chelsea who have won the race for his signature and the 21-year-old will link up with fellow summer signing and countryman Timo Werner.

Havertz made 45 appearances in total last season, scoring 18 and setting up another nine goals. He will certainly add competition to a midfield that already includes Mason Mount, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Ross Barkley.
