Monday morning's Chelsea transfer talk news roundup:

Kai Havertz is "very interested" in joining Chelsea

Bayer Leverkusen playmaker Kai Havertz is "very interested" in joining Chelsea during this summer's transfer, according to Bleacher Report journalist Dean Jones.

Havertz's future remains a question of much speculation, with the 20-year-old expected to leave BayArena this summer in search of pastures new.

Manchester United and Real Madrid have both been linked with the German star, but Chelsea are apparently in pole position to secure his signature.

He is eager, very interested actually. He really wants to push himself and Leverkusen are glamorous surprised at how focused he is on finding a new club, Jones said in an interview with talkchelsea.

He clearly wants Champions League football though so we will have to wait on that situation to be decided before knowing much more. If he joins then I'm not sure what the fate holds for [Callum] Hudson-Odoi at Chelsea.

Havertz appreciated an excellent 2019-20 campaign for his German club, scoring 17 times and registering nine assists in 43 appearances in all competitions.

Chelsea, who will face Arsenal in the FA Cup final on August 1, have already improved their attack ahead of the 2020-21 campaign with the signings of Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner.

Jason Sancho will have to push a move to Old Trafford

Jadon Sancho will reportedly have to make it clear to Borussia Dortmund that he's willing to join Manchester United this summer in order to secure a move to Old Trafford.

The 20-year-old enjoyed an outstanding 2019-20 campaign for BVB, scoring 20 times and providing 20 assists in 44 appearances, including 17 goals and 17 assists in the Bundesliga.

United continue to be strongly connected with the England international, although the Red Devils are reportedly struggling to come an agreement over a transfer fee.

According to The Mirror, Dortmund are not ready to accept less than £100m for the former Manchester City youngster, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side are hesitant to meet that figure due to the financial impact of the recent outbreak.

As a result, the report claims that Sancho will have to "push" for a transfer to Old Trafford by making it clear to his German club that he wants to leave ahead of the 2020-21 season.

Chelsea, Liverpool, Real Madrid and Barcelona have all recently been credited with an interest, but United are believed to be in pole position to sign the attacker.
