STORY: Chelsea have signed Germany’s highly-rated attacking midfielder Kai Havertz from Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen on a five-year contract, the Premier League club announced on Friday (September 4).
Financial details of the deal were not disclosed but British media reported the fee for the 21-year-old was in the region of 71 million pounds ($94.34 million).
Havertz left the national team camp on Friday to complete his medical before signing for the London club.
“I am very happy and proud to be here. For me it’s a dream come true to play in a big club like Chelsea and I can’t wait to meet all the players and the trainers,” Havertz said in a statement.
Havertz, who had two years left on his Leverkusen contract, scored 46 goals with 31 assists in 150 games for the club.
