Monaco signs Bayer Leverkusen star

BayerL Leverkusen forward Kevin Volland has joined AS Monaco from Bayer Leverkusen on a four-year deal for a reported initial fee of £9.8m.

Chelsea are also expected to complete a deal for another Bayer star Kai Havertz. Bayer have signed Patrick Schick to cover for the departures while Coach Peter Bosz has called for more signings.

Asked if he expected the 21-year-old to return to Leverkusen at the end of the international break, Bosz said: “Unfortunately our squad isn’t set yet. I don’t expect (Kevin) Volland and Havertz to train with us again.

“It’s possible more players will transfer. We definitely still have to add some players.” Bosz said.
