• Bayer Leverkusen is awaiting formal offers for Kai Havertz
  • Die Werkself is confident that Havertz will still play for them at Europa League
  • Chelsea is set to meet with Leverkusen officials this coming week

A Kai Havertz move to Chelsea F.C. remains in the air, but Bayer Leverkusen has revealed that no formal offer has been made for the German player. If there is any move happening, however, Die Werkself expects the 21-year-old midfielder to play out the remainder of the season before possibly moving out of Bay Arena.

Havertz has been heavily linked to the Blues, but Leverkusen sporting director Simon Rolfes confirmed that no formal offer has come their way.

"We know about the interest of clubs, but there is no official offer," Rolfes said in a press conference (via Goal). "We have said several times that we will end the season with our entire squad. And that includes Kai. That goes without saying for us."

Chelsea may be holding off for now, focusing on the season at hand. The Blues recently saw action in the FA Cup but bowed to Arsenal FC, 2-1, ESPN reported. It marked the second time that the Blues fell to the Gunners in three years.

On the side of Die Werkself, they are in no rush to sign a deal for the German. He has been doing well this season, scoring 12 goals in 30 games to help Bayer finish fifth in the Bundesliga.

Speculations claimed that Havertz was moving to Stamford Bridge before the Europa League. This would allow the 21-year-old more time to get acquainted with the system of Frank Lampard in preparation for next season. Already in are Timo Werner and ex-Ajax star Hakim Ziyech.

Hence, the coming week could be pivotal in the fate of Havertz. But for Leverkusen, the club would prefer Havertz staying at Bay Arena and finishing the current season.

In a report from Bild, Havertz was said to be planning to meet with Leverkusen management in what is seen as an effort to speed up his move to Stamford Bridge. Die Werkself is seeking $88 million in exchange for the attacking midfielder.

With the FA Cup Final over, the Blues could shift their focus on Havertz. Chelsea technical advisor Petr Cech is reportedly set to fly to Germany this week to negotiate a deal for the German football player.
