Bayern Munich attacking midfielder Kai Havertz has hinted on a possible transfer away from Bayer Leverkusen amid heavy reports linking him with a move to Liverpool.
Liverpool are yet to bolster their first team squad this summer but Jurgen Klop has left the door open to a signing before the close of the window.
Havertz made his debut for Bayer Leverkusen in 2016 and since then, his stock has been steadily on the increase.
The 20-year-old midfielder scored 17 goals in 34 league games for his side, and has earned the attraction of Bayern Munich and Liverpool, reports Bild.
It is widely believed he’d consider a move with the Bavarian side but while speaking to Bild, he revealed he’s open to a move away from Germany.
“I am honest, at some point the next step must come for me. But I’m not going to worry about when exactly that will happen. I really don’t know yet whether FC Bayern is the next and right step for me. I also don’t know whether foreign countries would not be more suitable for me. I really don’t think too much about it at the moment. I have that self-confidence, yes [that I could play for Bayern]. But the same applies to other clubs as well.”
Compared with Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil, Havertz has the ability to play with both feet and he is technically gifted on the ball. He predominantly plays as an attacking midfielder but he is comfortable playing on the right flank as well.
Liverpool are strong in every aspect of their squad but James Milner may not remain at his best at the end of next season, consequently, the Reds are believed to be looking to sign a player in his stead.
The report claim Havertz is valued at £90 million and he’d be a good addition for any club.
