Chelsea need to qualify for next season’s Champions League to sign Bayer Leverkusen attacker Kai Havertz this summer, according to a report.
Chelsea will supposedly have to qualify for next season’s Champions League to stand an opportunity of finalizing Bayer Leverkusen attacker Kai Havertz this summer.
The speculation surrounding the 21- year-old’s future continues to collect speed, with Frank Lampard‘s side idea to be leading the race to sign him ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.
Nevertheless, according to Bild reporter Christian Falk, the English club’s opportunities of signing the Germany international depend upon whether they can protect a spot in next season’s leading European competition.
The Blues are currently 3rd in the Premier League table however fourth-placed Leicester City and fifth-placed Manchester United would both exceed them if they were to win their games in hand on Sunday and Monday respectively.
Fifth might yet suffice to qualify for the 2020-21 Champions League, however, with Manchester City set to find out on Monday whether their appeal against a two-season European restriction has actually achieved success.
Havertz took pleasure in an outstanding season at BayArena, scoring 17 times and offering 9 assists in 43 appearances in all competitions, consisting of 12 goals in 30 Bundesliga getaways.
