Chelsea will be looking to return to winning ways when they welcome Aston Villa to Stamford Bridge on Saturday. 

The Blues’ run of three straight wins was ended by Everton just before the international break, with The Toffees grabbing a point late on courtesy of Ellis Simms’ first ever goal for the club.

Now, Graham Potter’s side face The Villans, who sit one place below the tenth-placed Blues in the Premier League table.

Chelsea could be boosted by the return of N’Golo Kante, who has been sidelined with injury since the third week of the season.

One player that looks likely to start the game, though, is Kai Havertz, although the German is reportedly attracting interest from elsewhere.

According to 90min, German giants Bayern Munich are plotting a summer move for the striker.

The report claims that the Bundesliga champions have their sights set on Havertz and are also interested in his Chelsea teammate Mason Mount.

Bayern are said to have been interested in the forward since prior to his move to Stamford Bridge back in 2020, perceiving him as a long-term successor to Thomas Muller.

Havertz is said to be a target for German champions Bayern Munich

The 23-year-old has made more than 125 appearances for The Blues since joining from Bayer Leverkusen, scoring 32 goals and providing 15 assists across all competitions.

Undoubtedly his finest moment in a Blues shirt came in 2021, when he scored the only goal of the game as Chelsea beat Manchester City in the Champions League final.

At present, Havertz is contracted to Chelsea until 2025, but the report claims that Bayern are increasingly confident that the player would move to Bavaria.

The German side are also said to be interested in Mount, who is set to be out of contract next summer and could be sold at the end of the current campaign.

Talks between the player’s representatives and Chelsea have so far failed to progress, and the England international has been linked with a number of clubs including Liverpool.
