Chelsea FC were dumped out of the Champions League by Bayern Munich in the round of 16 on Saturday night when they suffered a 4-1 defeat by the German side in the second leg of the tie.

However, Chelsea have now reached a provisional agreement with the player.

Lampard is also looking to bring in another goalkeeper after axing Kepa Arrizabalaga during the closing stages of last season following a string of disappointing displays since he arrived from Athletico Bilbao two years ago.

Chelsea chairman Bruce Buck has sung the praises of manager Frank Lampard following his first season in charge.

Chelsea and Lampard are lining up a summer spending spree as they overhaul the squad, already securing the services of German forward Timo Werner and Moroccan winger Hakim Ziyech. I think they're an upgrade on some of the players he's got.

And according to RMC Sport, Havertz wants to join the west London club, and has agreed personal terms on a five-year deal to make the switch to Stamford Bridge this summer.

The seal of approval from the Chelsea board - and by extension owner Roman Abramovich - will buoy 42-year-old Lampard as he continues to plot his reshaping of the Blues playing squad.
