Havertz is already a regular for the German national team and has won seven caps for Die Mannschaft.

Happy Havertz

Havertz said it is a ‘dream come true’ for him to join Chelsea, who put a lot of time and effort into signing him.

“I am very happy and proud to be here,” he said. “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!”
