Chelsea are prepared to offer up to €80 million, including add-ons, for Bayer Leverkusen playmaker Kai Havertz, according to The Guardian’s Fabrizio Romano.

The Blues reportedly opened talks with Die Werkself after agreeing to terms with Havertz on a five-year contract.

There’s nonetheless some distance between the two sides. Leverkusen favor €80 million earlier thanadd-ons, Romano reports, whilst Chelsea are solelyinclined to pay that a whole lot after the fact.

The Bundesliga outfit reportedly valued Havertz at €100 million earlier in the summer.

Chelsea are in a position to spend after clinching a Champions League berth on Sunday. They’ve already dropped a reported €40 million on Moroccan star Hakim Ziyech, and another €53 million on German striker Timo Werner. Manager Frank Lampard denied rumors that the club would need to sell midfielder N’Golo Kante to fund a move for Havertz.

The attacking midfielder ended the season as one of Germany’s hottest properties, becoming the first player in Bundesliga history to score 35 league goals before the age of 21. Havertz also captained Leverkusen in the final months of the campaign.
