MySportDab understands that Chelsea have offered Havertz a five-year contract despite the coronavirus financial impact on clubs.
Real Madrid, Manchester United and Bayern Munich have previously been linked with Havertz but clubs are unwilling to pay Leverkusen’s £90m fee.
However, Chelsea believe the player is worth around £70m, and Havertz’s transfer request gives Marina Granovskaia a good chance at negotiating a deal.
According to reports, Havertz is impressed with Chelsea’s ambitions by signing Ziyech and Werner fast.
Both players are expected to increase the potency of the Blues attacking force ahead of next season.
