With the summer transfer window remaining open for another month, football fans are keenly following to see the players leaving and joining their favorite teams. As such, rumors on the transfer of players are beginning to heat up with the start of the 2020/2021 season. Chelsea is among the most active clubs so far, signing more than five players.
Some of the players already signed in Chelsea’s squad include Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner, Ben Chilwell, and Thiago Silva. That comes as an attempt to bridge the gap to Liverpool and Manchester City while Malang Sarr is one for the future.
Frank Lampard’s side is still in the market for more additions despite spending over one hundred pounds on three players. The goalkeeper position is currently Frank Lampard’s top priority, due to Arrizabalaga’s inconsistency last season. Chelsea has also been linked with the likes of Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak and Rennes’ Edouard Mendy.
Another signing likely to be made by Chelsea is Bayer Leverkusen wonder kid Kai Havertz. The Blues are expected to part with around seventy-two million pounds, with add-ons, which will take a final fee to approximately ninety million pounds. The deal took a significant step on Monday afternoon.
According to Leverkusen manager Peter Bosz, their squad is not yet decided. However, he’s not expecting Kevin Volland and Kai Havertz to train with them again. He added that it’s possible that other players will also switch, meaning they have to sign more players too.
One of the players Leverkusen is looking forward to signing this transfer season is AS Roma forward Patrik Schick. He played for RB Leipzig, while on loan from Bayer Leverkusen.
Kai Havertz is the main subject for Chelsea football fans at the moment, though the deal isn’t concluded yet. However, Kai Havetz, won’t walk straight into the blues’ first-team side and immediately hit the ground running. Instead, he will be a crucial player for the side after he joins.
Despite the praises of the German wonder kid by the former Scotland international Don Hutchison, he questioned whether the blues needed him. The twenty-one-year-old is currently with the German side and isn’t expected to leave the camp to fly to England and sign a contract with blues. However, Hutchison believes they should also try to sign a new goalkeeper or center-back this summer to fix their defensive woes properly.
Chelsea has strengthened their defense by signing Thiago silva and Malang Sarr, with both players joining the team on a free transfer. Nonetheless, Hutchison believes that Havertz isn’t exactly what Chelsea needs right now even though he’s good. According to him, he loves the player, but the Chelsea fans need to be a little bit patient.
Havertz made his football career debut in October 2016 at Bayern Leverkusen and his skills have only continued to grow. The attacking midfielder featured in the 2017 UEFA Champions League for Leverkusen, after being the second-highest goal scorer in their U17 team with 18 goals.
