Kai Havertz has joined Chelsea from Bayern Leverkusen on a five-year deal.
Havertz becomes Frank Lampard’s seventh addition, joining Germany team-mate Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech, Ben Chilwell, Thiago Silva, Malang Sarr and Xavier Mbuyamba in what has a been a very busy summer for the blues.
“I am very happy and proud to be here,” Havertz said. “For me it is 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. Yeah, I am very happy to be here!”
The 21-year-old midfielder completed his medical with Chelsea on Sunday in London before joining up with Germany for their UEFA Nations League fixtures.
Before his move to Chelsea, Havertz has spent his entire career at Bayer Leverkusen, contributing an impressive 36 goals and 25 assists in just 118 Bundesliga appearances since making his debut in October 2016. He started 29 out of the 30 Bundesliga games that he played last season, contributing 12 goals and 6 assists.
