Sports Mole rounds up all of the latest transfer news in La Liga on Monday, July 20.
Monday morning's La Liga transfer talk news roundup:
Chelsea are reportedly close to finalising personal terms with Bayer Leverkusen playmaker Kai Havertz.
Despite having already agreed deals for Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner, Blues boss Frank Lampard remains determined to also win the race for highly-regarded Havertz.
Although the two teams are yet to reach an agreement over a fee, The Athletic suggests that there are no such issues regarding personal terms.
The report says that the 21-year-old is in favour of a transfer to Stamford Bridge, aware that the Premier League giants are the only club willing to meet Leverkusen's demands.
While Manchester United, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid have been linked with the Germany international in the past, none of that trio have any intention of bidding in excess of £70m.
Havertz contributed 12 goals and six assists from 30 appearances in the Bundesliga last season.
Manchester United are reportedly interested in signing Valencia midfielder Geoffrey Kondogbia during this summer's transfer window.
The 27-year-old made 34 appearances for Los Che during the 2019-20 campaign, including 27 outings in La Liga, where he contributed one goal and one assist.
The Frenchman's contract at the Mestalla has less than two years left to run, though, and there has been speculation surrounding his future in recent months.
According to FootMercato, United are exploring the possibility of moving for the midfielder, who is said to be keen on a switch to the Premier League ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.
Kondogbia started his career at Lens before arriving at Sevilla, spending the 2012-13 season with the Spanish club before impressing during a two-year stint at Monaco.
The Frenchman struggled to make his mark at Inter Milan between 2015 and 2018, though, and spent the 2017-18 campaign on loan at Valencia before arriving on a permanent deal in May 2018.
Los Che could struggle to keep hold of a number of key players this summer, having missed out on European football for next season courtesy of a ninth-placed finish in Spain's top flight.
