  • HIGHEST EARNERS

    Here are how Chelsea's wage structure pans out after Kai Havertz joins the club.

  • MAKING SPACE

    Chelsea will allow Conor Gallagher to join Crystal Palace on a season-long loan deal, according to the Evening Standard.

    The midfielder underwent a medical with the Eagles over the weekend, but will sogn a contract extension at Stamford Bridge before heading back over to Palace.

    He was the blues' Academy Player of the Year for the 2018/19 season and picked up a Europa league winner's medal.

    Despite his achievements and glowing future, space at Chelsea will be limited for him to make an impression this season as Chelsea have a wide range of talent and have made some more signings this summer.

  • HAVERTZ LATEST

    Chelsea are nearing the signing of Kai Havertz with Bayer Leverkusen reportedly agreeing a deal for his replacement.

    Reports in Italy outline an agreement between the Bundesliga club and Roma for forward Patrik Schick.

    The Czech Republic international spent last season on loan at RB Leipzig and Leverkusen were set to do battle with their divisional rivals for his permanent signature.

    But Bayer have now agreed on a £24million transfer with Roma, according to Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio.

    The deal will allow Havertz to head to West London with Schick taking his place in Peter Bosz's team.

    The Guardian report on a £90m deal being reached to bring the German to Chelsea.

    Initially costing £72m, the attacking midfielder will earn Leverkusen an extra £9m if certain performance-related bonuses are fulfilled.

    That is believed to include Chelsea winning the Champions League.

    And the Blues will hand over a further £9m as an installment at a later date.

    The deal should be completed this week with Bayer admitting they “don't expect” to see Havetrz again, after waving him off to Germany duty.
