Chelsea have confirmed their sixth major signing of the summer with Kai Havertz joining them from Bayer Leverkusen.

The Germany international was given permission to undergo a medical earlier today and the Blues have now officially presented him.

"I am very happy and proud to be here, For me it is a dream come true to play in a big club like Chelsea and I can't wait to meet all the players," He told the club's official website.

Earlier last month, it was claimed that Leverkusen wanted at least £72m upfront for the attacker with add-ons of around £18m.

The Blues, however, managed to reduce their demands and The Telegraph claims that they have paid an initial £62m for his services.

The west London giants have agreed to pay an additional £8m in the future, suppose they go on to win the Premier League with Havertz.

Havertz is their sixth major summer signing after the arrivals of Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner, Ben Chilwell, Malang Sarr and Thiago Silva.
