Chelsea have placed Kai Havertz above Jadon Sancho on their summer shopping list, according to reports. The Blues have been linked with both of the European stars as Frank Lampard looks to close the gap on Liverpool and Manchester City.
Chelsea are looking to get their business done early this year and have already captured Ajax ace Hamin Ziyech and RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner.
Another attacker is sought after and Havertz and Sancho have been highlighted as potential superstars.
However, Football London claim the Blues would rather move for Bayer Leverkusen’s Havertz because Manchester United are focussing all of their efforts on Borussia Dortmund winger Sancho.
The Red Devils have yet to make a formal approach for Sancho but they have been informed of the £115million price tag.
If Lampard’s side also join the race for the England international’s signature that valuation could rise further.
Instead, the west London outfit would rather try and negotiate a deal for versatile midfielder Havertz.
Leverkusen missed out on the Champions League spots as they finished fifth in the Bundesliga.
That means Chelsea may be able to strike a deal if the 21-year-old wants to move to play at the highest level.
