Liverpool were linked with a 2020 move for Kai Havertz back in August by German outlet Sport 1 – and now the prodigal attacking midfielder has discussed his potential options.
The 20-year-old is regarded as one of the world’s best young players and will surely have outgrown Bayer Leverkusen by the end of this campaign.
“They haven’t scared me off,” Havertz told Sky in Germany (via Bulinews.com ), in regards to Timo Werner staying at Rb Leipzig this summer…
“I don’t know exactly what it was like with Timo [Werner], but it just didn’t happen for me this year. I think there were a number of reasons why.
“But I’m happy to be here and stay in Leverkusen for another year. We’ll see what will happen next summer.”
Last season, as a teenager, Havertz bagged 20 goals in all competitions, which is phenomenal considering he plays as a roaming no.10.
His form earned him a spot in the Germany national side and we reckon he’ll be a starter at next summer’s Euros if he maintains his current levels of development.
Havertz could add creativity to our midfield and possibly be an option on one of the flanks in the front-three – or perhaps even as a false-nine in the style of Roberto Firmino.
He’s an extra-ordinary player and his potential is ridiculous. It’s about time Klopp blooded a German into Liverpool’s squad – and having not purchased anyone in 2019, either in January or the summer, next year could be the one for the boss to re-enter the market.
