Kai Havertz to Chelsea transfer boost

Chelsea have been cleared to sign Kai Havertz after Bayer Leverkusen crashed out of the Europa League.

Leverkusen were reluctant to sell while they remained in the competition but Monday’s 2-1 defeat to Inter Milan saw them crash out at the quarter-final stage.

Chelsea need to agree a fee with the Bundesliga outfit, who are holding out for a deal worth up to £90m.

Havertz has reportedly agreed personal terms on a five-year contract with the Blues.

Jadon Sancho to Man Utd transfer twist

Borussia Dortmund plan to keep Jadon Sancho after Manchester United failed to meet their deadline for a deal.

The Bundesliga outfit were open to selling the England international before their pre-season camp, although the two clubs were miles apart in their valuations.

Dortmund chief Michael Zorc said: “We plan on having Jadon Sancho in our team this season, the decision is final. I think that answers all our questions.

He added: “Last summer, we adjusted Jadon’s salary to match the development of his performances. So in context, we had already extended his contract until 2023 back then.”

Willian to Arsenal transfer medical

Willian has undergone a medical ahead of a move to Arsenal.

The 32-year-old winger is a free agent after his contract at Chelsea expired.

Stamford Bridge bosses were eager to extend his deal but had no interest in meeting his demands for a three-year contract.

Arsenal are more willing so a move to the Emirates Stadium is on the cards.
