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.

Frank Lampard continues to build his own squad at Stamford Bridge, and Havertz has been linked with a switch to London all summer.

The Guardian has previously claimed that the Blues have agreed on 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 instalment at a later date.

Leverkusen are already set for Havertz’s exit after agreeing on 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 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.
