The deal for Havertz was long reported, and according to various reports, has been completed for some time and there was just a delay in official confirmation.
The fee is reported to be around €80 million including add-ons, matching the club record they paid for goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga from Athletic Bilbao in 2018.
Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia said: "Kai is one of the best players of his age in world football, so we are very happy that his future lies at Chelsea.
"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.
"We are delighted to be able to add his versatility and quality to the squad before the season begins."
