Chelsea FC has completed its sixth major signing this season. After months of negotiations, Kai Havertz finalized his signing with Chelsea.

Havertz will move from Bayer Leverkusen for £62 million. It could increase to £71 million, as Leverkusen originally asked for £90 million for the 21-year-old.

Havertz was able to provide 17 goals and nine assists this past season.

He left the German national team training camp on Friday to complete the medical exam. German National head coach, Joachim Low, confirmed that Havertz would miss the Sunday game against Switzerland.

Havertz will be available to play for the beginning of the English Premier League (EPL) on Sept. 14. Unlike Chelsea teammates Timo Werner and Antonio Rudiger, they may have to miss the first two games if they are required to quarantine after playing their national competitions.

“I am very happy and proud to be here. 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,” Havertz told the Chelsea website.

Chelsea director, Marina Granovskaia, is also excited about his arrival.

“He has proven pedigree in one of the best leagues in Europe, he plays for the German national side, and he is an exciting, dynamic talent,” Granovskaia said.

“We are delighted to be able to add his versatility and quality to the squad before the season begins.”

Havertz is going in on Frank Lampard’s significant reconstruction of the offensive line. So far, Lampard has been able to sign Werner, Hakim Ziyech, and Havertz for a strong front line.

He has also made three major signings on defense with Malang Sarr, Ben Chilwell, and Thiago Silva.

As the 2020-21 EPL season comes closer, teams are making their final transfers before the Oct. 5 deadline. Lampard has made a statement this summer; it’s time to see if they paid off.
