Chelsea drop into odds-on favourites to sign Kai Havertz

Will Frank Lampard look to the Bundesliga again?

After adding Timo Werner to their ranks, Chelsea have been cut into odds-on favourites to sign another top Bundesliga talent in Kai Havertz.

Odds have plummeted from 20/1 into as short as 1/4 that the West London side signs the attacking midfielder.

The best price of 6/4 is available with one firm, Unibet, which still makes Chelsea clear favourites.

It’s been reported Roman Abramovich has financially outmuscled the likes of Real Madrid, and punters have been heavily backing the move.

In the last 24 hours, 61% of all bets on the German starlet’s next club have backed Chelsea.

That means they replace previous favourites Bayern Munich at the top of the market, with the Bundesliga giants drifting out to 4/1 to secure another top youngster.

It’s now 13/5 that Havertz decides to stay with current side Bayer Leverkusen beyond the transfer window.

Two Premier League sides are 20/1 in the running, with Liverpool and Newcastle around the periphery of the market.

Leading football stats wizards, WhoScored.com, revealed that only Thomas Muller (76) has made more key passes from open play than Havertz (56) in the Bundesliga this season.

Also, only Robert Lewandowski (16) has had a direct hand in more goals than Havertz (15) in the Bundesliga in 2020.

Oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson: “Chelsea have already been busy this summer, with the signings of Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner leaving fans drooling at the prospect of how they'll line-up next season.

"However, the acquisition of Kai Havertz as well would top off one of the very best transfer windows in recent Premier League history. Can they fight for the title next season?"
