Bayer Leverkusen’s man of the moment Kai Havertz has remained coy over his future amid continued links with Premier League sides, including Liverpool.
It was reported by The Mirror this week that the Reds are at the head of the queue when it comes to signing the player, who is valued at £90 million by his current club.
Bayern Munich are also keen and since the resumption of the Bundesliga, Havertz has made it clear why so many teams are interested in his services.
He scored twice this weekend as Leverkusen defeated Borussia Monchengladbach, adding to his two goals scored against Werder Bremen last week.
It takes his recent tally to eight goals and four assists in ten games, and Havertz has even captained Leverkusen for the two games post-lockdown.
But whilst Liverpool and others continue to be linked with the player, Havertz is not getting carried away.
Speaking after the Gladbach game with Sky Germany, as relayed by Goal, the 20-year-old made it clear he did not want to upset the applecart at his current club by discussing a potential transfer.
“I’m concentrating on this season and will see what happens afterwards.
“I am very grateful to Leverkusen and I don’t want to mess it up in any way.”
Liverpool are not alone in their interest for Havertz but it is clear the youngster is not yet pushing for a move away.
Regardless, the noises coming from Germany in recent times have suggested he would rather make his next move internally. As reported by Sky Sports, a swap to Bavaria with Bayern Munich is his preferred option.
This summer, given Liverpool’s apparent reduced spending power, the idea of Havertz turning up at Anfield seems fanciful.
