So amazing: Watch Video of Kai Havertz first day at Stamford Bridge

Kai Havertz first day in London was amazing as he trained in Cobham’s headquarters base for the first time completing his £82m transfer to the club.

The 21-year-old left Germany’s national squad on Friday morning to confirm his arrival at Stamford Bridge.

He becomes the club’s sixth major signing of an incredible transfer window after the arrivals of Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech, Ben Chilwell, Thiago Silva and Malang Sarr, taking their total spending to an enormous £230million.

And the highly-rated attacking midfielder could not hide his delight after making the move to west London club.

He said: ‘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 and the trainers. Yeah, I am very happy to be here!’

Havertz, who scored 18 goals and contributed nine assists in all competitions for Leverkusen last season, has already been in training at the club’s complex at Cobham.

Most of the squad that are not on international duty have been given the weekend off but Kai Havertz has been put through his paces.

Havertz has also admitted that the opportunity to work with Frank Lampard had a’big impact’ in his decision to move to Stamford Bridge.

‘Of course he had a big impact on my decision because I loved him as a player and watched him very often, and I think I can learn from him now he is a manager as well,’ Havertz told the official club website.

‘I think he is a very humble person and a great guy and I can’t wait to play with him and learn from him.

‘He was very offensive like me and he loves to score goals, and I love to score goals as well so I think he will help me a lot in my position. Also maybe on the things that I can improve and I can’t wait to work with him.’

Havertz, who is in the current squad with the German national team, will also join up with compatriots Antonio Rudiger and fellow summer signing Timo Werner in west London club.

‘I think it is very exciting because Chelsea has very young players and I know some of the players like Timo [Werner] and Toni [Rudiger],’ Havertz added.

‘I have played with them in the national team and they are good friends of mine and so I think this is very good for me.

‘Also that Chelsea have very young players and English players and that is very nice and a big project. Hopefully we can have many successes.’
