After you click on the "WhatsApp Transfer", select the "WhatsApp" tab and click the "Transfer" or "Transfer and Merge" feature from here.

If you choose "Transfer", the original WhatsApp messages on the target device will be covered. So, you'll only get the transferred WhatsApp messages. If you choose "Transfer and Merge", your WhatsApp messages on the target device won't be covered and deleted. You'll have the messages merged and combined.
