Chelsea transfer news: Havertz contract agreed, £200m spending spree, focus turns to White

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer talk for Chelsea on Monday, August 10.

While Chelsea have already completed big-money deals for Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner, that will not stop the Blues from making more additions before the beginning of the new season.

At a time when Kai Havertz is expected to be the next player through the entrance doors at Stamford Bridge, a wide range of other stars are being linked with a move to West London.

However, Frank Lampard will inevitably have to reduce his squad in order to facilitate the arrivals, leading to speculation to how the West Londoners can raise further transfer funds.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest news on possible comings and goings from Stamford Bridge.

Despite over a month of speculation involving Havertz and Chelsea, the Blues are yet to agree a transfer fee with Bayer Leverkusen.

However, while the Premier League outfit remain at loggerheads with the Bundesliga outfit, it appears that they have made progress regarding personal terms.

According to RMC Sport, Havertz has indicated that he is happy to accept Chelsea's offer of a five-year contract.

Providing that a compromise can be reached over Leverkusen's £90m asking price, the playmaker could link up with Chelsea after the German outfit have concluded their Europa League campaign.

Having not been given an opportunity to spend the money received for Eden Hazard's move to Real Madrid, it has long been reported that Chelsea are prepared to generate shockwaves in the summer transfer window.

Ziyech and Werner have already arrived at the club, while Havertz is expected to become the third attacking player to complete a switch in the coming weeks.

However, according to The Mirror, club officials are prepared to hand Frank Lampard a further £200m ahead of the new season.

The report suggests that the Blues boss will be given the green light to move for Leicester City defender Ben Chilwell and West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice.

Chelsea will also sign a new goalkeeper, providing that they can find a buyer for out-of-form Kepa Arrizabalaga.


Chelsea 'willing to outbid Liverpool for Ben White'

Having watched him impress for Leeds United in the Championship last season, Brighton & Hove Albion boss Graham Potter naturally wants Ben White to remain at the Amex Stadium.

However, the centre-back, who is yet to make a Premier League appearance, is attracting widespread interest in his signature ahead of the upcoming campaign.

While Liverpool have been linked with a bid, the Daily Star claims that Chelsea are willing to meet Brighton's asking price, said to be in the region of £40m.

The 22-year-old has two years remaining on his contract, potentially leaving the Seagulls to consider parting ways with the prospect.
