Chelsea reluctance sees Bayern enter pole position for star midfielder

    Bayern Munich have become the favourites to sign Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Kai Havertz ahead of Chelsea, according to a report.

    Several reports say Chelsea are keen on the Germany international as part of Frank Lampard’s exciting transfer plans.

    Timo Werner looks likely to move to Stamford Bridge, with the Blues also reportedly interested in Ben Chilwell and Said Benrahma.

    With reports also claiming Chelsea want two marquee signings, Havertz is also a name on Lampard’s wish list.

    One claim suggested Chelsea are in concrete talks with the player’s representatives and added that Manchester United remain an option for the midfielder.

    However, The Telegraph now says Bayern are in “pole position” to keep Havertz in Germany.

    The newspaper claims the German champions are working on a deal worth over £75million for the 21-year-old.

    That price is higher than the fee Chelsea are currently willing to pay, the report also claims.

    Bayern also want to bring long-term target Leroy Sane in from Manchester City to form a “new-look attack”.

    Their pursuit of Sane last summer was well-publicised but his knee injury was partly to blame for the deal failing.

    Having exited the Champions League to Liverpool at the last-16 stage last season, Bayern have looked impressive this term.

    Robert Lewandowski’s 45 goals have helped, alongside the influences of the likes of Alphonso Davies and Joshua Kimmich.

    Flick’s side can win an eighth successive league title on Tuesday by beating Werder Bremen.


    Chelsea, meanwhile, get their season back underway against struggling Aston Villa on Sunday.

    Lampard’s men sit fourth in the Premier League, three points above United.

    The Blues go to Villa Park on Sunday with the poor record of no away Premier League wins in 2020.

    Villa, meanwhile, also play on Wednesday against Sheffield United.
