The Blues want to make Havertz their next acquisition after signing Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech, and are hoping to complete a £70m deal after Bayer finish their Europa League campaign, but Voller insists any deal will be on the German club's own terms.

"With his talent, it means he's on the list of all the best clubs," Voller told Gazzetta dello Sport. "We know of the interest of a couple of clubs, especially Chelsea, but for us, the situation is quite simple: he has a two-year contract, if anyone wants him on our terms, fine, otherwise he stays here another year and we are happy.

It won't be easy, but for a player like him there is no COVID discount.

I think the deal is basically done. Meaning Havertz and Chelsea having everything sorted out, with clubs needing to agree on a transfer-fee. Right now everything is on hold due to Bayer playing in Europa League. When they lose to Inter, the deal will go through very fast.
