Liverpool could be one of several clubs interested in securing the services of Leverkusen midfielder Kai Havertz during the summer. According to the Daily Mail, the wonderkid could leave the Bundesliga outfit for around £100 million.
The 20-year-old has eight goals and five assists this season and netted a stunning goal and registered two assists in last night’s 3-1 win over Porto.
Leverkusen progressed 5-2 on aggregate and with Havertz pulling the strings, there is every chance they could win the competition.
Liverpool could look to add a creative midfield spark to their ranks in the summer and it is thought that Jurgen Klopp is a big fan of the German youngster.
Havertz can play in a number of positions, operating on the right-wing in both legs of Leverkusen’s Europa League games with Porto.
He has eight goals and five assists this season and is widely viewed as one of the brightest young talents in world football.
Following last night’s win over Porto and his stunning goal, Liverpool fans have been taking to Twitter to speak on his potential move to Anfield.
Here is a selection of tweets from Liverpool supporters after Havertz lit up the Europa League with a clinical display.
Liverpool are favourites for Werner, Havertz, Sancho & Mbappe. What a time

I'd love Havertz to come to Liverpool, but not for that price. https://t.co/OgJxfQaOgk

Kai Havertz pulling a masterclass against Porto away? Will fit in perfectly at Liverpool then.

2 Players I really want Liverpool to sign in the summer.
Kai Havertz of Bayer Leverkusen for Midfield and Timo Werner of Leipzig for Centre Foward. These 2 players are both young and posses the quality and hunger to play for a great Club Like Liverpool. Thoughts Reds? #lfc

What a player this kid is. Get this fella and Werner in, and we’ll go up a level again. Both top players and perfect for the way we play. Add a couple of cover positions. Left back for Robbo an a Centre half for when Lovren leaves and I’b more than happy with that. https://t.co/7GGpJmwRSm

Totally agree. Imagine having Werner and Havertz as well as the lads we already have? Scary

Mate, Havertz has an absolutely insane potential and currently playing at a high level. Jones is a good young player. Jones will defo be in the squad going forward, but no way he’d be a world beater. Hope I’m wrong, as he’s proved me wrong in the past.
