However, he won’t be the only headline arrival at Stamford Bridge this summer with deals for Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner already secured while manager Frank Lampard is keen to add a left-back and centre-back to his squad.
Ben Chilwell is considered the next priority after Havertz but Leicester could demand as much as £80m for the England left-back.
Nicolas Tagliafico, Alex Telles and Robin Gosens are therefore more affordable options while Chelsea have their eye on West Ham ace Declan Rice as a long-term solution to their defensive issues.
Meanwhile, Kepa Arrizabalaga looks destined for the exit after being dropped against Wolves so Lampard will also need to sign a new goalkeeper before the start of next season.
