Kai Havertz 'asks Bayer Leverkusen to accept Chelsea bid'

Kai Havertz is reportedly desperate to join Chelsea and has asked Bayer Leverkusen to accept the Blues' offer.

The Germany international is one of the most sought-after young talents in the game after scoring and assisting a combined 64 Bundesliga goals at the age of 21.

Chelsea are considered the overwhelming favourites to sign the versatile attacker and are believed to have tabled an opening bid of £54m.

According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Havertz has taken action at his own end by informing Leverkusen of his desire to swap clubs.

However, the German side are said to be determined to keep hold of their prized asset until after their Europa League campaign, which resumes against Rangers on Thursday.

Speaking on the eve of that match, boss Peter Bosz insisted that Havertz is fully focused on Leverkusen.



Leaked clip shows Chelsea forward Willian in Arsenal kit

A leaked clip from video game PES 21 has given Arsenal supporters further hope that their side will snap up Chelsea forward Willian on a free transfer.

Arsenal are the rumoured frontrunners to sign the Brazil international, who is set to leave Stamford Bridge later this month when his contract expires.

Willian has been holding out for a three-year deal at Chelsea, but the club are only willing to offer him a two-year extension and he will now move on.

The 31-year-old's imminent arrival at the Emirates Stadium appears to have been confirmed in a trailer for the new next Pro Evolution Soccer game.

The seven-second clip was posted by The Sun and shows Willian in Arsenal's new adidas shirt, accompanied by the message "new signing".

It then cuts to a shot of the outside of their stadium stating: "Welcome to the Emirates"

Arsenal recently struck an official partnership with the Pro Evolution franchise.
